It is fitting that the Michigan Law Review should dedicate this issue to the memory of Mr. Justice Murphy. From the day of his matriculation in 1908, the relationship between Frank Murphy and the University of Michigan, and particularly the Law School, was a warm and intimate one. While he was on the campus, his deep idealism and attractive personal qualities not only made him widely known but brought him the affection and regard of his fellow students, members of the faculty, and officers of the University. Graduation (LL.B. 1914) did not terminate or substantially alter this relationship. Throughout his long career of public service Frank Murphy maintained close contact with his many friends here. In 1937, in the midst of the unprecedented problems which he was facing as Governor of the State, he delivered the annual Case Club address at the Lawyers Club. In 1939 he was awarded the honorary LL.D. degree by his alma mater.
