The Record, Vol. 43 : Summer, 1969 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Record, Vol. 43: Summer, 1969 A leading Virginia newspaper, in a June editorial on the announced September retirements of Chief Justice John W. Eggleston 'o6 and Justice Archibald C. Buchanan '10 from the Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals, referred to them as two of the ablest jurists who ever occupied that distinguished bench. The editorial echoed the sentiments of the justices' friends and colleagues by calling Justice Buchanan a profound scholar, a well of knowledge and Chief Justice Eggleston a keen pragmatic analyst of legal issues. The editorial further stated that both men were highly regarded by practicing attorneys and that age had not blunted their incisive minds. The decision of the two justices to leave the State's high tribunal, after a combined total of 58 years of service, marked the end of an era in Virginia legal history and culminated a startling series of parallels in their long and distinguished careers.
