WILLIAM REYNOLDS VANCE served on the faculties of four schools

of law, in addition to several others in which he taught during summer

sessions. In three of these four schools, he served as dean. My own

acquaintance and friendship with him, however, was restricted to the

years in which he served as professor of law at Yale. In 1910, it was

my privilege to have a part in calling him to Yale from the law school

of George Washington University; and it was after his arrival here that

I first met him. He had already become well known personally to the

legal profession, especially by reason of his service as secretary of the

Association of American Law Schools. We invited him to become a

member of the Yale faculty, however, because of his known success

as a teacher and legal writer.
