Dana Latham Memorial Award


In 1976, the Los Angeles County Bar Taxation Section decided to honor the memory of Dana Latham by establishing the Dana Latham Memorial Award. The first recipient of the award was Arthur B. Willis, an outstanding member of the Los Angeles tax bar.

The award is given only in those years when the Executive Committee of the Taxation Section concludes that there is a then-living leader of the Los Angeles tax bar who has made an outstanding contribution to the community and to the legal profession in the field of taxation. Generally, such service involves a broad participation in community and public service coupled with achievement as a leader on the Bench, in legal education, tax literature, or in practice as a lawyer, and may involve a combination of these factors.

Dana Latham epitomized those characteristics. He served as President of the Los Angeles County Bar Association, Commissioner of Internal Revenue, and made many other significant contributions during his lifetime.
