Bill Dulany left behind a legacy of leadership in the community – Time Flies by Kevin Dayhoff for Sunday, April 16, 2017

I was very young and full of many questions when I first met Del. Dulany. This was when I just started to have an all-consuming interest in history and I would have chance opportunities to talk with him. Westminster was a much smaller community back then and he was a delegate representing Carroll County in the House of Delegates 1963-66… He served with my cousin, Maryland Del. Wilbur W. Magin, 1959-1967, and distinguished Carroll County delegates Jacob M. Yingling, and Thomas R. O’Farrell.
Decades later when I was an elected official, Dulany always had time to give a helping hand, lend scholarly advice, and to give me the academic legislative history of a particular public policy.
Bill Dulany left behind a legacy of leadership in the community
Time Flies by Kevin Dayhoff for Sunday, April 16, 2017
Former Carroll County Delegate William B. Dulany was remembered by friends, family, community leaders, and colleagues at a celebration of his life, accomplishments and legacy at a service at the Beasman Auditorium at Fairhaven in Sykesville earlier in the month.
Dulany was 89 when he passed away on March 19, 2017. A Carroll County native son, Dulany was born in Sykesville, where he served as the class president at Sykesville High School before he graduated and joined the Navy during World War II.
Many of us had gathered at Fairhaven early and traded memories of the various ways Dulany had touched and enriched our lives. He was a larger than life icon in the community and most of us spoke in hushed tones about our past experiences with Dulany and how he helped shape the Carroll County we know today.
Folks from all walks of life attended the service. McDaniel College was represented. Dulany was a 1950 graduate of Western Maryland College, now McDaniel. He served on the college’s board of trustees from 1976 to 2006.
