It is hard to discuss William Taylor Muse, or The Dean as he was known to most of us, without using superlatives in what would appear to the uninitiated a super abundance. William T. Muse was many things-a devoted husband and father, an ardent Baptist, an enthusiastic and constant fan of athletics at the University of Richmond, a recognized scholar and legal author, a teacher of law for forty years, secre- tary and president of the Virginia State Bar Association, and a Sunday School teacher for most of his adult life. To most of us, he was pri- marily two things, The Dean and our friend. In these two capacities, his personality meshed. He was the Law School to most of us. That is not to say that the Law School, or our affections for it, disappeared with him. He visualized and epitomized the T. C. Williams School of Law as a vital and continuing institution. It does and will continue, as does our affection for him.
