About

The Decatur Bar Association as a temporary organization, held its first meeting at the County Court room in Decatur, Illinois, on the 17th day of September 1917. A committee of five was appointed to prepare By-Laws and a Constitution and make plans for a permanent organization. On October 1 of that year, The Decatur Bar Association was organized and the following officers were elected to serve until the regular meeting to be held in January 1918: Albert G. Webber, President; O.W. Smith, First Vice-President; Ralph J. Monroe, Second Vice-President; and Fannie A. Bivans, Secretary and Treasurer.

Active membership was limited to members of the Bar of Macon County, residing and practicing in Illinois who received approval of two-thirds of the Committee on Admissions.
