Professor Theodore J. St. Antoine: A Legendary Figure

Ted St. Antoine’s career as a law professor started more than three decades ago, in 1965, just after I had graduated from the University of Michigan Law School. I never had the good fortune to experience Ted in the classroom and I have always regretted that, for he has been a legendary teacher at the University of Michigan Law School. Indeed, even among those of us who graduated before his arrival at Michigan, Ted quickly gained a reputation as one of the finest classroom teachers ever to deliver a lecture in Hutchins Hall. He has graced his classes with brilliance, dignity, wit, warmth, and vision, always challenging and inspiring those who have come to seek his lessons. It is hard to imagine the University of Michigan Law School without Professor St. Antoine.
