I first became acquainted with J. Westwood Smithers in the fall of 1929 when he entered the law school as a student in what was the morning division. I was then in my second year, but due to the small number which comprised the student body and the limited library facilities at that time, not many newcomers remained strangers for long, and West, as he came to be known, was certainly no exception.
