Obituary for William Scott Ellis

William Scott  Ellis
William Scott Ellis, after a long period of ill health, died of pneumonia at Mount Sinai St. Luke’s Hospital in New York City on November 30, 2015.  He was 92 years old. Bill was born in Somerville, Massachusetts, graduated from Harvard College and Harvard Law School, and served in the U.S. Army medical corps during World War II. As a student he was active in a number of national and international student organizations including the International Union of Students, the World Student Christian Federation and the University Christian Movement. After completing his studies and a period of service as an Assistant U.S. Attorney, he and several colleagues founded the law firm Ellis, Stringfellow & Patton, which later became Ellis, Stringfellow, Patton & Leibovitz.
Bill’s practice included the areas of affirmative action and civil rights, as well as general practice.  He also represented numerous national and international religious and student organizations.  In the early l970’s he was appointed as administrator in an affirmative action case with the mandate to increase minority employment among newspaper deliverers employed by the major newspapers in New York City.  He resigned as administrator more than thirty years later, after the Title VII goal of 26% minority employment was achieved.  Bill never retired, but continued practicing law in a limited way until his death. He was an active participant in local and national church activities and was a member of the Board of Directors of the Executive Council of the Lutheran Church in America, later to become the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
Bill is survived by his wife, Anne Leo Ellis, his son and daughter-in-law Paul and Mary, and his son Jonathan.  Bill and Anne Ellis were married at Advent Lutheran Church in 1957.

Donations in lieu of flowers can be made to the Havens Relief Fund Society (, 475 Riverside Drive, Suite 1940, New York, NY 10115 or to the Abiding Memorial Fund of Advent Lutheran Church, 2504 Broadway, New York, NY 10015.
