Presentation remarks by
Betsy Smith, Governor of the Washington & Northern Virginia Company:
Henry Mackall was a governor of the Jamestowne Society. He also
was one of only a few governors the Washington and Northern Virginia
Company has had since it was founded in 1959.
Henry was a highly respected attorney in the City of Fairfax, and deeply
involved in many, many historical societies in Northern Virginia.
At the time of his death, he was Lieutenant Governor of the Washington
and Northern Virginia Company.
He was a proud graduate of the University of Virginia and was a Virginia
Gentleman in the truest sense.
Henry's wise counsel is greatly missed.
As a tribute to Henry:
The Washington and Northern Virginia Company presented the
above National Geographic Map of the "Chesapeake Bay in John Smith's
Time" -- to hang in the office of the Society's headquarters in
We think Henry would like this.
