Dean Edwin Bryant

“The established lawyer is always a public man, and his influence on affairs is always more or less potent. His office well-stocked with books, is one from which no fitful gust of the popular will can turn him out. His income is not precarious, nor his independence fettered. He is above the wiles of the politician or the caprice of the populace.”

Edwin Bryant, dean from 1889 to 1903, in his farewell address to the Class of 1891
