A Tribute to Karl Llewellyn, 71 Yale Law Journal 805 (1962)
KARL LLEWELLYN died in his sleep the night of February 13. The world is
poorer that he is gone; it is richer that he has lived. So quick of mind, so
blithe of spirit, so ardent of effort, so kind and affectionate of heart, and yet
so understanding and essentially so unprideful of opinion, we shall not soon
see his like again. To this ancient he was not merely a student; he was a son
Learning and and a comrade. His very name bore omens for the future: Life and Love and Law--each beckoned him to shining goal, a goal that he attained.
