E. Wallace Chadwick (1884-1969) was a distinguished member of the Delaware County Bar Association and well-respected judge of the Court of Common Pleas. Born in Indiana, his family moved to Chester when he was a young boy, and he graduated from Chester High School in 1902, University of Pennsylvania in 1906, and the University of Pennsylvania Law School in 1910.
In his will, Judge Chadwick provided for a trust to be established for the benefit of charitable and educational endeavors in Delaware County. One of Judge Chadwick's Trustees, Frank I. Ginsburg, proposed that a substantial sum from the trust be given to the Delaware County Bar Association, and thus the E. Wallace Chadwick Memorial Fund was established. Today, the fund is used to assist law students in obtaining education and to sponsor lectures, educational programs, and meetings at the Bar Association.
This website was created in part by a generous grant from the E. Wallace Chadwick Memorial Fund.
