History of Huntsville-Madison County Law Foundation, Inc.
The Huntsville-Madison County Law Foundation, Inc., was incorporated on September 17, 1987, the 200th anniversary of the United States Constitution. The Law Foundation has operated continuously since its incorporation in 1987. The foundation was originally created as a permanent successor to the Continuing Sponsor’s Fund. The Huntsville-Madison County Bar Association had maintained that fund for several years to financially support the Elbert H. Parsons Public Law Library and the Elbert H. Parsons Law Library Building.
The business and affairs of the foundation are managed by the Board of Trustees of the Law Foundation. Three trustees are chosen directly by the Executive Committee of the Huntsville-Madison County Bar Association for such terms as the Executive Committee shall designate. The original trustees were John David Snodgrass, Douglas C. Martinson, and Robert Sellers Smith.
The Board of Trustees of the Law Foundation is authorized to select no more than four trustees of the Law Foundation, each of whom shall serve for a term of three years, and who shall serve in addition to the foregoing trustees.
