Dean Oliver Rundell

Dean Oliver Rundell

UW Law School alumni Oliver Rundell was acting dean for two separate terms — from 1929 to 1932, and again from 1943 to 1945 — before serving officially as dean between 1945 and 1953. At his death in 1958, law faculty published “memorial resolutions” in the Wisconsin Law Review, which included this excerpt:

“Two devotions shaped Oliver Rundell’s professional life: first, service to the University as a teacher and administrator; second, study of the law of property, the focus of his teaching and research, in order to clarify whatever was obscure, and to make it a better servant of human needs.”
