Mr. David S. Barr, Washington, D. C.
DAVID S. BARR was much more than a lawyer to those privileged to know and work with him. He was the Guild’s mentor, advisor, role model, institutional memory and friend. Before starting his own practice and representing our union and others, Barr was a National Labor Relations Board attorney. He was passionate about justice and fairness and viewed journalists as agents of those virtues. In his name, The NewsGuild-CWA awards annual scholarships to one high school and one college student journalist whose work focuses on issues of social justice. Barr had represented the Guild for more than 20 years when he died of a heart attack in 1997.
