Dean Oliver Rundell

UW Law School alumni Oliver Rundell was acting dean for two separate terms 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.”
