New Law Chain Goes To Archibald Cox '34
Archibald Cox '$4, former Solicitor General of the United States, has been appointed the first Samuel Williston Professor of Law at the Law School.
The new professorship was made possible by the bequest of Jessie R. Buckner, window of the late Edward Buckner, a 1922 Harvard Law School graduate.
A leading authority on labor law, Cox left the Faculty of Law in 1961 to represent the federal government in cases before the Supreme Court. He was elected to the Board of Overseers in 1962, but resigned before returning to the Law School this fall.
Samuel Williston, for whom the new professorship is named, was a professor at the Law School until his retirement in 1938.
