In Memoriam: William “Bill” R. Joslin

William “Bill” R. Joslin, of Campton, died Wednesday, Aug. 6, 2014, at his home. He was 69.

After graduating from Clark University, Joslin served in the Peace Corps for two years in Bihar, India. Later, while working his way through Georgetown Law School, he was the legislative assistant to US Representative James Cleveland and moved up to chief of staff in a short time. During his time there, he played an essential role in the compromise that allowed construction of the Franconia Notch Parkway.

When Joslin started working for US Agency for International Development (USAID), his first post was as deputy director in Bangladesh for four years. Then he was the foreign service officer in Jamaica for five years. His work in Jamaica when Hurricane Gilbert hit earned him the Superior Unit Citation and the Presidential Meritorious Service Award. Joslin continued his work as the mission director of USAID in Poland and served as senior adviser to the coordinator of assistance to the newly independent states of the former Soviet Union.

Back in New Hampshire, Joslin worked to help develop science and technology programs suitable for funding initiatives at the University of New Hampshire. The Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping and the Crimes Against Children Research Center are two of his proudest projects.

Joslin is survived by his wife, Karen, and three children, Sarah, Rebecca and Abigail.

In memory of our colleague William “Bill” R. Joslin, the NHBA Board of Governors has contributed to the NH Bar Foundation.

Supreme Court Rule 42(9) requires all NH admitted attorneys to notify the Bar Association of any address change, home or office.
