Distinguished Service Professor Freeland dies
Jack Freeland, Distinguished Service Professor Emeritus, 73, died Nov. 7 at North Florida Regional Medical Center following a long illness. “Freeland was an outstanding teacher and scholar at UF for over 35 years until his retirement at the end of 1994,” said Graduate Tax Program Director Michael Friel. “His contributions to the College of Law and to the Graduate Tax Program he co-founded were immense. He will be sorely missed.” The family has requested that, in lieu of flowers, memorial contributions be made to the James J. Freeland Scholarship Fund or James J. Freeland Eminent Scholar Chair at the College of Law.
