AtoZ Blog Challenge – U – University of Chicago

I invite you to follow this blog after the #Challenge is completed. I will return to posts on gardening, writers and their books, and personal essays on things that make my life rich and interesting.

An interesting man, David Middleton, retired Dean of the Law School at the University of Chicago, enters the story towards the end. As the reader, I hope you like him. I can see why Katherine does. I have only visited the campus once, but have always remembered the architecture there. Beautiful! I had no idea until I started my research for Facing East that the Law School at UC is one of the highest rated.

David went on talking about the Law School. “The school was founded in 1902, when John D. Rockefeller and a coalition of donors started it. I’m proud to say it has gone on to become one of the highest rated law schools in the United States. I’ve spent most of my adult life teaching there and eventually became the Dean. I loved every minute of it, but am reveling in my release from the responsibility of the day to day operation of the school.” From my new novel, Facing East

    I was offered my first faculty position at the U of Chicago but turned it down (to my mentor’s chagrin). First, the ride from Evanston each day would be a killer – perhaps for real, given where the El was at the time – and I didn’t like faculty all telling me what I’d be doing for them and not what they would do for me!

    They had an incredible economics department. Milton Friedman was there when he won the Nobel Prize, and I believe F. A. Hayek was there as well.

    The building is impressive.
