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 to 1916. His
methods and his personality indelibly stamped themselves upon the minds of all the 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 periods 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 requirements.
