Rudolph H. Nottelmann


Rudolph Nottelmann, professor of law since 1927, becomes Professor of Law Emeritus this quarter, and plans to join the faculty of Hastings Law School of the University of California next autumn. Now that the time has come to say good-bye it seems almost incredible to all of us who have known him for so many years as friend, teacher, colleague, that we can open next fall without him. Certainly few men have done more to shape the school than he, and none more to endear it to its graduates. He has seen eleven generations of law students come and go, all of whom remember him, and it is one of his glories that he remembers them—not necessarily fondly, either way, because he is no Mister Chips—but because he has that rare gift of being able to create indelible relationships. I have never met a man who has a greater host of friends, nor one who has deserved them more.
