The Horace S. Manges Lecture & Conference Fund was established by the law firm of Weil, Gotshal & Manges in 1986 in memory of its esteemed partner, Horace S. Manges, ’19. Generous contributions to this Fund were made by Mr. Manges’s family, friends, colleagues, clients, and other associates. Mr. Manges was a distinguished trial lawyer and was counsel to leading writers and publishers and to the American Book Publishers Council (now the Association of American Publishers). A founder, officer, and trustee of the Copyright Society of the U.S.A., he also performed important government service and played an active role in the development of copyright legislation.
