Book Review: John William Sterling, Class of 1864 Yale College, 39 Yale Law Journal 926 (1930)
The author of this informing and readable book was the professional associate of John W. Sterling for twenty-five years, during sixteen of which he was his law partner. He is uniquely qualified, therefore, by contact and experience to serve as legal adviser of the Trustees of the Sterling estate in their administration of it for educational progress in accordance with the wishes of the testator. The magnitude and importance of this task may be realized by recalling that to Yale University alone Mr. Sterling's benefactions, with accruing income, may exceed. $35,000,000. Already eighteen professorships have been endowed, large sums have been set aside for scholarships and fellowships, and the following Sterling buildings have been constructed, or are planned or are in course of construction: the Chemical Laboratory, the Hall of Medicine, the University Library, dormitories, a graduate school, and the Law School.
