Goodby, Mr. Chips
Professor M was one of my favorite professors in law school.
He taught Property, and he had such a way with discussing fee simple absolute, executory interests, covenants running with the land, easements, etc.
He also taught Land Use, which introduced me to the world of urban sprawl, restrictive covenants and neighbors suing each other for ugly home renovations. Boring topics, but he made them exciting and interesting.
He was the coolest professor ever. He went to high school with Elvis.
I kept in touch with him after I graduated. Everytime I see a blighted inner city or a decaying strip mall, I think of Professor M and what he would have said about the atrocious level of land use planning!
I just found out that Professor M passed away.
Rest in peace, Professor M. I'm sure there's a large room in Blackacre waiting for you up there. #
