William C. Barnard, 65, was renowned trial attorney
----------
          Services for William C. Barnard, 65, Indianapolis, a founding partner of the Indianapolis-based law firm of Sommer & Barnard PC, will be at 11 a.m. Oct. 9 in St. Paul's Episcopal Church. Calling will be from 4 to 8 p.m. Oct. 8 in Crown Hill Funeral Home.
          He died Oct. 4.
          Known for his work on complex business and environmental litigation and antitrust and securities law, Mr. Barnard played a prominent role in some of the more highly-publicized Indiana court cases over the past three decades.
His first major case in private practice was representing the American Basketball Association and its members, including the Indiana Pacers, in its antitrust case against the National Basketball Association.
          Mr. Barnard also was co-lead counsel for plaintiffs in the Public Service Indiana securities litigation, which grew out of the closing of the Marble Hill nuclear generating facility.
          Most recently, he was co-lead counsel for plaintiffs in a national class action against international oil company Atlantic Richfield Co., where a judgment of $63 million was entered after a jury verdict for the plaintiffs.
          Over the years, Mr. Barnard had been involved in a number of class actions in the antitrust area, and he successfully represented plaintiffs against the gypsum, plywood and cement industries. He also successfully defended a number of local and national antitrust and securities class actions.
          His work with the ABA case led to a partnership with  James K. Sommer  in 1969. Today, the firm has 59 attorneys.
          "Bill's abrupt and unexpected passing fills me with a deep sense of loss, both personally and professionally," said Sommer. "He was not only a close friend but a valued colleague whose legal knowledge and courtroom skills were unsurpassed. His death leaves an enormous void."
          A 1958 cum laude graduate of Princeton University, Mr. Barnard received his law degree from the University of Michigan in 1961. He was a member of Cap and Gown of Princeton and Phi Delta Phi fraternity.
After law school, he was a deputy attorney general for the state of Indiana for three years, and then was an attorney for Eli Lilly and Co. for four years.
          Listed in The Best Lawyers in America and Who's Who in American Law, he was elected a fellow to the International Society of Barristers, an honor society with a membership limited to 600 outstanding trial lawyers chosen by their peers.
          "Bill Barnard was the consummate legal professional," said partner and friend Edward W. Harris. "His reputation extended far beyond Indianapolis and Indiana, attested to by his election to the International Society of Barristers. Working with him and being his friend were both wonderful experiences."
          Mr. Barnard had been admitted to practice before the U.S. Supreme Court and the Federal Court of Appeals for the Fifth, Seventh, Ninth and Federal circuits. He was a member of the Indianapolis, Indiana State, Seventh Circuit and American Bar associations.
          He also was a member of Meridian Hills Country Club, Columbia Club and Lawyers Club.
Memorial contributions may be made to the American Heart Association or Park Tudor School.
Survivors:  wife Lynne Whyte Barnard,  children  Laura,  David,  Peter,  Sarah,  Elizabeth;  six grandchildren.

          Mr. Barnard, who was born at Burlington, (Ind.,) where his brother, Sylvester Barnard  still lives, had been in prison work since 1895.  He was once assistant superintendent of the Indiana Reformatory when it was located at Jeffersonville and later duty and then acting warden at the Indiana State Prison at Michigan City.  He also was deputy warden of the Michigan State Prison.  He had been in prison work in the District of Columbia since 1916, and was general superintendent of all local prisons since 1924.
Service Extended
        Bapt.[sic] Barnard was due to retire when he was 70, but so satisfactory was his service that the civil service waived the age limit.  He served an additional five years and retired on his own motion.
          A year ago, when Capt. Barnard was in his 75 year, Commissioner Allen of the District of Columbia, referered to Barnard as the "best prison superintendent in the country."
          In retiring from office, Capt. Barnard recommended establishment of a hospital to cure alcoholics.
          "Nothing is accomplished by repeatedly sending a man to the workhouse for getting drunk.  There are thousands of repeaters.  The drunks should be treated as medical cases,"  Capt. Barnard stated.

Handwritten  Obituary
Death Date:  August 28, 1933
----------
When on my day of life the night is falling,
And I hear far voices out of darkness calling,
Thou who hast made my home of life so pleasant,
O Love Divine, O Helper ever present,
Be Thou my strength and stay.
----------
          David Elmore Barnard, son of  Brazilla [Barzillai]  and  Rachel [Roberts] Barnard  was born in Wayne county, Ohio [IN], November 2, 1840.  Departed this life August 28, 1933, aged  92 years  9 months  and 26 days.
          In early life the family removed to Rush county, Indiana, where David Elmore grew to manhood; here he spent more than eighty years of his life, being actively engaged in farming until he was four-score years of age.
          On October 28, 1869, he was united in marriage to  Jennie Swain, and to this happy home there came four children, three sons and one daughter.
          Shortly after his marriage, he affiliated with the Friends Church and gave himself sincerely to the cause of his Master and the interest of the Sunday School and Church.  He was a man of faith in Jesus Christ, positive in his convictions and devoted in his service to his home and his Maker.
          At the call of his country he enlisted in Company C, 16th Regiment Indiana Volunteers and served from July 1862 till June 1865.  He was a participant in some of the major engagement of the War, one of which was the Siege of Vicksburg.
          Mr. and Mrs. Barnard retired from the farm about 12 years ago and became residents of Manilla where they were greatly beloved by many friends and acquaintances.
          Mrs. Barnard was called away some nine years ago and these later years have been a period of patient waiting to Mr. Barnard, often have we heard in the evening twilight as he sat alone in his home, this servant of God signing that familiar hymn,  "There's a Land that is Fairer than Day."
          Surviving are three sons:  Omer, of Indianapolis;  Marshall, of Franklin; and  Dr. Roy Barnard  of Shelbyville; with seven grandchildren;  a brother, Ambrose Barnard, Seattle, Washington and a sister, Mrs. J. E. Merrill  [Helen Jennie Barnard], Indianapolis, and many other relatives.
----------
" He held his place ---
Held the long purpose like a growing tree ---
Held on through blame and faltered not at praise.
And when he fell, he leaves a lonesome place against the sky.
The pains of death are past,
Labor and sorrow cease;
And, life's long warfare closed at last,
His soul is found in peace.
Soldier of Christ, well done!
Praise be thy new employ;
And while eternal ages run,
Rest in thy Savior's joy! "

Obituary
----------
          Jennie Swain  daughter of  Prior  and Louisa (Coffin) Swain  was born in Walker Township, Rush county, Aug. 20, 1850, and departed this life Oct. 1, 1924, aged 74 years, 1 month and 12 days.
          She has lived practically all her life in and near the house of her birth, attending the district schools and acquiring her education from these places of learning the best they could give.  Being naturally of a keen mind she outstripped the school curriculum and by application and experience was able to move in the very best circles of society.
          Early in her young girlhood she met  David E. Barnard  and friendship ripened into love and on Oct. 28, 1869, they were united in marriage by the Rev. T. B. Gary, a minister of the Methodist Church, and settled in their house just South of the Wesleyan Methodist church in Rush Co.
          To this union was born Four children of whom Three are living.  Omar P. Barnard  of Indianapolis the eldest and deprived by sickness of attending the funeral service, our sympathy goes out to him.  Marshall S.  a telegraph operator for the Pennsylvania railroad at Franklin Ind. and  Dr. Roy F. Barnard  a dental practitioner of Shelbyville, Ind.
          At the age of 24 years she was attending service at the Wesleyan Methodist church and strong conviction for the need of a savior took possession of her heart and through repentance and faith in the atoning blood of Jesus Christ, she found peace with God and great joy filled her soul and her life was continually radiating the sunshine of a Godly life.  Soon after her conversion she united with the Friends church at Little Blue River and through all these Fifty years she has remained a faithful and loyal member, helping to bear the burdens and counting it all joy to be a servant of the Lord.
          Early in the history of Little Blue River meeting she was appointed by the Monthly meeting to the station of Elder.  The meeting recognising her ability as Elder has continuously retained her.  Her quiet unassuming dignity and wise judgement has made her to be appreciated, though she sought no place, her ability, wisdom and strong christian character was the gift that made room for her.
          She taught a class in the Sabbath school for a great many years, and years ago was chosen as clerk of the meeting of Ministry and Oversight which position she still retained at the time of her death.
          During the month of June last she was taken serious sick but after a few weeks seemed to be much better but about two weeks ago the relentless hand of deseas laid hold, Though all was done that physicians, nurses, Husband, and children, and friends could do there was nothing that would stay the hand of the reaper.  During the days of suffering she was the embodiment of patience and the Christian grace that had sustained her during the time of health, was on exebition constantly during the days of adversity and pain.  Constantly she reminded the friends that all was well, and the testamony that had rang out in church service of victory was in the face of death made stronger when she cried I have perfect victory.
          So passes one of God's noble women and a loving devoted wife and mother, a sincere friend and nighbour, and while our hearts break with the parting yet we through our tears can say  Praise God  for allowing Jennie Barnard to have lived among us and become to us a real mother in Israel.
          She leaves a loving Husband, Three sons, Seven grandchildren becide a great company of friends that will mourn her departure, but we mourn not as they who have no hope, for the skye is clear and her bark has safley anchored in the haven of rest where ere this she has been reunited with  Allie S. Barnard  her daughter who preceded her to the heavenly home when she was 11 years old.
----------
Card of Thanks
----------
          We wish to extend our thanks to all of the friends and neighbours, the Dr. and nurse and all who have so kindly sumpathised with us during the sickness and decease of our dear wife and mother.
          We would say  God bless you all.

          Mrs. Sallie Barnard, aged 74 years, one of the well known women of the Morristown community, died at her home three-quarters of a mile south of that place at 5:30 o'clock this morning.  Death came unexpectedly and is thought to have been due largely to heart trouble.  She had been ill for the past several weeks, ut yesterday seemed  to be a great deal better and was able to sit at the table and eat heartily during each meal hour.  She appeared to be in good health, considering her age, last night before retiring.  Shortly after 5 o'clock this morning she complained of feeling worse and before the family physician could reach the home she had expired.
          Mrs. Barnard was born in this county and had spent the greater part of her life as a redident of the Morristown community.  She was the widow of the late  Granville Barnard,  who died several years ago.  They were the parents of three children, all of whom survive the mother.  They are  Arthur Barnard, of Indianapolis, and  Earl  and  Warren Barnard, at home.  Mrs. William Bass, of this city, is a niece.
