In Memory of Duncan Alford

A brick in the law school’s courtyard and a posthumous article are among the newest tangible memorials honoring law library director Duncan Alford.

Thanks to interim director Candle Wester for letting us know that the brick has been installed, and the article has been published.


The brick is located on the left-hand side of the courtyard doors closest to the library’s main doors.
