GEORGE
BANNERMAN
DEALEY
1859-1946

   citizens of all stations
and creeds, comprising
the g.b. dealey memorial
association of dallas,
erect this monument to
commemorate the service
and preserve the example
of a great, good and useful
life, consecrated in faith,
dedicated in purpose, to
the glory of god and the
betterment of mankind…
   truth was its light,
wisdom its guide, history
its couselor, journalism
its fruitful province;
sympathy broad as human
need was its inspiration;
philantropy, — founded
in all-embracing brotherly
love, — its highest aim.
