High Brow

Terry Sandalow has an extraordinary mind, its power suggested by his incredible brow and forehead. (I’m always reminded, in fact, of Melville’s description of the massive size of the sperm whale’s head as representing its huge intelligence.) By any measure, Terry is very smart, broadly educated, and deeply sensitive to the nuances of life. From my earliest days on the law faculty, I remember being continually impressed, at faculty discussions and seminars, by his illuminating questions and comments and aware of his reputation among students as one of the most intellectually challenging teachers. Colleagues routinely sought his advice and criticism on their research and drafts. And it was part of his general reputation that he set the highest standards – probably too high – for his own scholarship.
