GEORGE WILFRED STUMBERG
Distinguished Professor of Law
In 1925, after a brilliant career as a law student atColumbia and Yale, a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford, a practicing lawyer in Missouri and Louisiana, and a law professor at Louisiana State University, George Wilfred Stum berg came to the Texas Law School, and, to our good fortune, he has been here ever since. For with him, and in no small part because of him, the law school has, in the succeeding years, risen to a place of national prominence.
Mr. Stumberg's scholarship is attested by his many published works. His Principles of Conflict Law, first published in 1937 and now in a second edition, is recognized as a foremost authority in this field of lawyer's law. Numerous articles and a recently published casebook add to his reputation as a leading thinker on Conflicts problems. To Criminal Law he brought careful analysis, clear thinking, and a plea for reform, all characteristic of his work and all badly needed at the time he wrote. Further illustration of his versatility and breadth of interest is found in his soon-to-bc-published casebook on Admiralty. But Mr. Stumberg is not merely a scholar. During World War II, when his age and previous military service entitled him to stay at home, he volunteered his services to the nation and as an expert on French governmental affairs labored many arduous months on the African continent over the complex problems created by the allied occupation there.
To his students, however, it is his classroom teaching that pi aces him forever in their hearts. A master of the Socratic method, he instills in his classes an intellectual self-reliance, a habit of critical inquiry, that becomes an invaluable part of their equipment as lawyers. But tempering the rigorous discipline of his questions arc the sallies of wit and droll anecdotes that are seized by law students as their private property to be passed on from class to class. Whatrc-union of classmates goes by without an exchange of favorite Stumberg stories? His excellence as a teacher has won him hundreds of friends among practicing lawyers of the state, and when the law school needs help, Mr. Stumberg can be counted on to rally their support.
Distinguished as his career as a scholar, teacher and public servant has been, his greatest service to us is his unyielding devotion to the Texas Law School. With a reputation that brought him many invitations to go elsewhere, he has chosen to remain here, steadfast to the school he helped to build. To this loyal friend, we respectfully dedicate the 1953 Pcregrinus.
