Bill Morgan, co-founder of Morgan, Angel & Associates, died on June 24, 2022. Bill is survived by his wife, Patricia Morgan, and their daughter, Kathryn Morgan.
William Arthur Morgan was born on November 2, 1937, in New York City. Bill joined the United States Marine Corps when he was 17 and retired as a Major after a distinguished 20-year career. Upon leaving the service, Bill attended The George Washington University, where he earned a Bachelor of Arts and a Master of Philosophy Degree in history.
Bill Morgan and Ed Angel co-founded Morgan, Angel and Associates on November 2, 1981. During the early years of the business, Morgan Angel conducted research for numerous projects, ranging from collecting archival footage for documentary filmmakers to writing neighborhood histories. Although these and similar projects continued, the firm became increasingly involved in litigation concerning historical land, natural resource, environmental, and Native American issues.
After Bill’s retirement in 2000, he became active in several charitable organizations. One of his favorite charities was St. John’s Community Services, which helps intellectually and developmentally challenged individuals find housing and employment opportunities. St. John’s recognized Bill’s contributions in 2017, honoring him with the Pillow Lee award.
Bill had a life-long love of musical theater, mystery novels, and sports. He and Pat enjoyed their many trips abroad, especially to Venice. He had a wonderful sense of humor and enjoyed interspersing conversations with clever puns. To his final days, Bill never lost his love of history or his abiding interest in and affection for Morgan Angel. He will be greatly missed.
