Guest Speaker
Biography
by Carol Clark
Before becoming an esteemed member of our Club and the State Bar of Georgia, William J. ("Bill") Morton practiced medicine as a board certified urological surgeon in Atlanta for over thirty years. Post-graduate urology training took place at Emory-Grady Residency Program, followed by a stint in the United States Air Force as a medical officer.   
 
A life-long learner, Bill's curiosity landed him in law school where he became a member of the State Bar of Georgia in 1985. Medio-legal topics are one of his passions.  Clearly it was a labor of love to author Medical Malpractice: Handling Urology Cases, highly recommended for 11:30 p.m. reading.
 
The term "Renaissance Man" gets tossed out every now and then, but Bill Morton fits the mold perfectly.  When asked about his interests outside of law and medicine, Bill lists history, astronomy, ornithology, classical piano and photography. Did I mention that he holds a private pilot's license and United States Coast Guard captain's licenses?
 
He loves his wife Monna and they divide their time between Atlanta, Georgia and Ennis, Montana. Bill is well into the writing of his next book which explores Andrew Ellicott's life and travels. If you haven't heard of Ellicott's Rock in Georgia history, you will.
 
I know you will enjoy hearing Bill Morton discuss Georgia's boundaries and how we got them. Read more about him at www.wjmortonmdjd.com.
