Washington Law Review


William T. Hart


The dediction of an issue of the Washington Law Review to my friend and former colleague, Professor and Associate Dean Robert S. Hunt, provides me with an opportunity to relate his contribution to the law firm of Schiff Hardin & Waite in Chicago. Bob Hunt likes to describe himself as from a small town in Iowa; the son of a country lawyer. While this is true (with credit to a small town and a fine country lawyer) he also came to the firm of Schiff Hardin & Waite in 1950 with a distinguished academic record. He was a graduate of Oberlin College (A.B. 1937), Harvard University (M.A. 1940), and the Yale Law School (LL.B. 1947). He completed graduate work in legal-economic history at the University of Wisconsin (S.J.D. 1952), where he was a Rockefeller Research Fellow in Law. Later he became an Assistant Professor of Law at the State University of Iowa. Professor Willard Hurst, the legal historian, recommended Bob Hunt to the firm.
