A path to greatness often begins with a special teacher, and this is such a story. In the fall of 1949, John P. Frank was a new associate professor at the Yale Law School. He previously had earned undergraduate and law degrees at the University of Wisconsin, clerked at the Supreme Court for Justice Hugo L. Black during the October 1942 Term, practiced law, earned a J.S.D. degree at Yale and begun teaching law at Indiana University.
