Memory Hold The Door Honorees from 1958 to 1967.

David Wallace Robinson, Sr. (1868–1935)

David Wallace Robinson was a graduate of Roanoke College with an A.B. degree and of the University of Virginia where he received his LL.B. degree.

He married Miss Edith Childs in 1897.

He practiced law in Lincolnton, North Carolina for one year and then in Columbia for the remainder of his life.

He was essentially an advocate and during the more than thirty years of his professional life, he appeared in countless cases in the State and Federal courts, on both the trial and appellate levels.

Mr. Robinson was an admirable citizen, scrupulously honest and of great ability, professionally and otherwise.

“He never shirked the unpleasant features of a legal fight when to do so might gain his own personal advantage.”
