Friends, family members, and former colleagues will pay tribute to Garland E. Wood — the first African-American to join the elite ranks of Goldman, Sachs & Co. partners — at a memorial Thursday for the former public finance banker.

Mr. Wood died last November at the age of 66 after a long illness. The memorial will take place at St. Paul’s Chapel at Columbia University in New York City at 3 p.m.
