W. Scott Street, III, former Secretary and Treasurer of the Virginia Board of Bar Examiners, died Sunday, February 1, 2015. He was 70.
Mr. Street's long and faithful service as Secretary and Treasurer of the Board began when he was 28 years old and continued for 42 years until his retirement on January 1, 2015.
"As Scott often said, he prepared for the examination 84 times after taking it himself," said Stephen M. Quillen, President of the Board. "His signature on the law license of everyone admitted to the Virginia Bar since 1972 attests to the fact that he oversaw the admission of the vast majority of the current members of the Virginia State Bar. Scott was a talented lawyer, a delightful colleague, and an inspiration to all who knew or worked with him. His advice and counsel will long be remembered and missed," said Quillen.
In addition to Mr. Street's service as Secretary and Treasurer of the Virginia Board of Bar Examiners, he practiced law for 34 years at Williams Mullen in Richmond. His leadership and service to the bar continued throughout his career. He served as president of the Virginia State Bar in 1999-2000. Mr. Street was also a member of the House of Delegates of the American Bar Association, a trustee of the National Conference of Bar Examiners, a member of the Richmond Bar Association, and past chair of the VSB Committee on Legal Education. He was a fellow of the American Bar Foundation and a fellow and past president of the Virginia Law Foundation.
Mr. Street was a graduate of Hampden-Sydney College and the University of Virginia School of Law.
He was also an accomplished banjo player and bluegrass musician. In a January 5, 2015 article in the Richmond Times-Dispatch, longtime friend and fellow musician Martha Adcock described Mr. Street as "'a patron of the arts and a devoted musician' with a 'wide-ranging wit — urbane to hillbilly' and an 'unparalleled equanimity." She said the tall Street 'stands above most others in terms of character, good humor, good will and good deeds.'"
The funeral service for Mr. Street is scheduled for Friday, February 6, 2015, at 1:00 p.m. at River Road Baptist Church, 8000 River Road, Richmond, Virginia.
