SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED

STATES
MONDAY, JUNE 6, 1927

PRESENT: THE CHIEF JUSTICE, MR. JUSTICE HOLMES, MR. JUSTICE VAN DEVANTER, MR. JUSTICE McREYNOLDS, MR. JUSTICE BRANDEIS, MR. JUSTICE SUTHERLAND, MR. JUSTICE BUTLER, MR. JUSTICE SANFORD, AND MR. JUSTICE STONE.

THE CHIEF JUSTICE said:

The Court announces with deep personal sorrow the death of William Riley Stansbury, its clerk, at 5 o'clock on yesterday (Sunday) morning, June 5.

Mr. Stansbury was born May 25, 1856, so that he had reached the age of 71. He was born, and has always lived, in this District, except for a year or two spent in the Signal Service of the United States. He entered this Court as an assistant clerk in August, 1882, and has acted in every capacity as a subordinate in the clerk's office, having succeeded Mr. James D. Maher as clerk in October, 1921, six years ago. He was an accurate, faithful, earnest, and efficient public servant. He was saturated with the traditions of the office and familiar to the last detail with all the duties to be discharged in that important place. He endeared himself in every relation to the members of the Court. He was genial and accommodating and interested for every member of the public, and especially every one of the bar who had to transact business with the Court. He was a man of the utmost probity and of highest character in every respect.
