Jeffrey Rockwell came to the Yale Law School in 1971, of an age with his classmates, but in many ways already a whole man. Jeff was a study of modesty and self-control. He had been born in New England but migrated with his family to Kansas, where he grew up. He had the style of the Connecticut Yankee, but enjoyed blending it with a certain midwestern understatement and dry humor. His composure, self-control and essentially sober, deeply dedicated approach to life were communicated clearly. Yet even in serious debate his eyes were quick with humor. A telling point would often be followed by a broad, warm smile.
