MBA Past President Roy A. Hammer

It is with great sorrow that we share the news that Massachusetts Bar Association Past President Roy A. Hammer (1978-79) died earlier this week at the age of 81. He had been of counsel to the Boston law firm Hemenway & Barnes LLP.

An MBA Gold Medal Winner (1985), Hammer was active with the MBA for many years, as well as a past president of the Massachusetts Bar Foundation (MBF), the MBA's philanthropic partner. In 2014, the MBF presented Hammer with its President's Award at its 50th Anniversary Gala, noting his leadership in committing the MBF to be a core funder of the Flaschner Judicial Institute.

Service arrangements are being made under the direction of Levine Chapels in Brookline.
