It is with great sorrow that the Journal reports the death of Judge Henry Wade Rogers on August 16, 1926. Judge Rogers was the dean of the Yale Law School from 1903-1916. His methods and his personality indelibly stamped themselves upon the minds of all students in the School during that period. Prior to his appointment by President Wilson as Judge of the United States Circuit Court of Appeals in 1913, the work of Judge Rogers had been almost wholly that of an educator. He had served for long period as professor and dean of the University of Michigan Law School and as president of Northwestern University. At the Yale Law School he was held in affectionate esteem not unmixed with awe by all the students. None can fail to have a most lively remembrance of his vigor and impressiveness in the classroom. Many, indeed, thought that he was too exacting in his requirement.
