  • LEGISLATION: Morris was the author of the Morris Act (1921), "which allowed a cemetery to be abandoned if ratified by a majority of lot owners." He also authored the Second Morris Act (1923), "authorizing municipalities to enact ordinances requiring the removal of bodies under 'police power' in cemeteries where burial had been prohibited by law for a certain number of years."
