Distinguished professor It is with great sadness that we report the passing of two distinguished professors, Professor Emeritus Walter Weyrauch and Professor Emeritus Dexter Delony.

Walter Weyrauch, distinguished professor and Steven C. O’Connell Chair, died on Friday, Oct. 17. Weyrauch’s retirement in December 2007 followed 51 continuous years of distinguished teaching and scholarship at UF. On Sept. 29, UF Law celebrated Weyrauch’s intellectual legacy with the Walter Weyrauch Symposium: Reflecting on the Contributions to Legal Thought of Walter Weyrauch. ( See symposium program)

“UF Law lost one of its intellectual giants with the passing of Distinguished Professor Walter Weyrauch,” said Robert Jerry, dean and Levin Mabie and Levin professor. “Walter has been an active presence at the law school, as recently as last week. Many of our students and faculty knew him and will mourn his passing.”

Weyrauch’s teaching and scholarship focused on family law, business organizations, comparative law, law and society, legal philosophy, and autonomous informal lawmaking, and he is widely published in these areas.

Dexter Delony, who died Thursday, Oct. 16, was a graduate of the University of Alabama and Harvard University. Deloney taught at UF Law for over 30 years, where, among others, he taught former Governors Lawton Chiles and Rueben Askew. He retired from UF in 1983.
