This article is written in support of the proposed Uniform Commercial
Code, insofar as it deals with Sales of Goods and is intended to
supplant the Uniform Sales Act. In the process of its construction,
the present writer acted for several years as an adviser to the reporter,
being appointed for that purpose by the American Law Institute. He
attended all the conferences of the committee, regarding the undertaking
with respect to its effect upon the general law of Contracts as
well as upon the law of Sales. The Director of the Institute, Mr.
William Draper Lewis, presided over these conferences. In addition
to the reporter and associate reporter, the active participants included
a judge of the United States Court of Appeals who had formerly been
a law school dean, a New York lawyer who had represented the New
York Merchants' Association, and three lawyers in active commercial
practice representing the Commissioners on Uniform State Laws.
