Washington Law Review


Morris L. Cohen


In an academic career that spanned over forty years, Marian Gallagher left a unique mark on American law librarianship, and thereby on American legal education. She trained many outstanding law librarians, inspired an even greater number of us, and provided leadership in her own library and throughout her profession. She was also, as George Schatzki and others have said, funny and happy, warm and sensitive, bright, thorough and efficient. Through her individuality, her wit and her manner, she brought color, verve and style to a profession. Her special contribution to law librarianship and legal education stemmed from a combination of those accomplishments and personal traits. What she did was inseparable from what she was; her deeds flowed naturally from her character and her personality.
