HIS Family Honors Griswold
WW  G L                Nearly 1,000 people gathered
Tuesday as the Law School honored
Erwin N. Griswold by naming its
faculty office building after the
former dean.
Griswold served as Law School
dean from  1946 to 1967, longer
than any other except Christopher
Columbus Langdell. Appointed in
1967 by President Johnson to the
post of solicitor general, he held
that post until 1973, longer than
anyone else this century. Cur-
rently, Griswold is a senior partner
in the Washington D.C. firm  of
Jones, Day, Reavis & Pogue.
