Ward S. Bowman, Jr., 87 Yale Law Journal 235 (1977)


When a man retires from university life it is natural that not only he but his friends sum up that segment of his work and ask what there is about it that is unique and may prove permanent. Ward Bowman will continue to teach a light schedule for a few years, so we will have him with us; but his resignation of his tenure at year-end is enough of a transition to make the question appropriate. All professors keep the teaching enterprise going, and that is contribution enough, but most of us hope something more than that has come of our academic years. In Ward's case there has been a good deal more.
