The Death of Professor Knowlton - The loss to the Law School and to his colleagues of the law faculty in the death of Jerome Cyril Knowlton cannot be expressed. For thirty-one years, the longest period of active service ever given by any man to this Law School, Mr. Knowlton was an effective factor in the development of the institution and in the moulding of the character and the legal ideas and ideals of the thousands of graduates who have passed through the Law School into the service of community and state and country, at the bar, upon the bench, in legislative halls, and indeed in all of the walks of life. Few if any men now living have been known to as many law students as was Mr. Knowlton. And few indeed are they whose influence has been as widely felt, for he made a vivid and lasting impression upon all who came in contact with him.
