Comments from readers are welcome. Please send them to Cornerstone, Texas Tech University School of Law, Lubbock, Texas The contents of the Cornerstone do not necessarily represent the views of the foundation, its officers or trustees, the law school administration, or Texas Tech University. Cornerstone editor: Kay Patton Fletcher January, 1989 Dear Alumni and Friends of the Texas Tech Law School: Our school year is off to a flying start. This report will highlight some of the major developments which have already taken place. In this issue we report on the retirement of Professor Mud A. Larkin. Mud is a legend at this law school school and I know all of you will enjoy reading about his distinguished career. We will all miss having Mud here at the Texas Tech Law School but we will all enjoy the fruits of his past labors for many years to come. There is also an article in this issue on the appointment of W. Reed Quilliam, Jr. as the George Herman Mahon Professor of Law. We are fortunate to be able to add new endowed professorships. We salute Professor Quilliam on his appointment to this new professorship. All of our staff and faculty worked long hours during the latter part of the summer and the first part of this fall term in preparing for our joint American Bar Association and American Association of Law Schools Sabbatical Reinspection. Every seven years each approved American law school is evaluated. This permits schools an opportunity for self-study and objective peer review. Of course we all think that we have an outstanding law school. I am happy to report that our site inspection team agrees that we have a very sound program. And while we are always relieved to hear favorable peer reviews, we are primarily anxious to reach a consensus on what we can do to strengthen our program even more. Our first priority will be to strengthen our library. Budget constraints throughout Texas in the past several years have taken a toll on university libraries generally. Law school libraries have not been spared. Happily President Robert W. Lawless and Executive Vice President and Provost Donald Haragan have committed University resources to address this weakness. With this help we expect to rapidly improve our library. We are also committed to continuing to strengthen the diversity of our faculty and to review our curriculum for possible improvements. Finally, the time has come to consider capital improvements to the law school building. Our very fine facility was completed in It is time to install custom storm windows, add additional student offices (which can also serve as interview rooms), replace carpeting and furniture which has worn out after twenty years, and add some 10,000 square feet to the law library. We are currently working with University leaders, our Texas Tech Law School Foundation and our Texas Tech Law Alumni Association to further define our needs and to prepare specific plans to satisfy those needs. I close by reporting on a very positive development. We received more applications this year than we did last year. Even though we accepted fewer students, we had more students enroll. This is a swing in our favor. At the same time our median LSAT and GP A went up. We are convinced that our scholarship program is working. We take great pride in the continuing strength of our student body. They characterize the Texas Tech School of Law today and they will serve the people of Texas and the United States tomorrow. Sincerely, 3 W. Frank Newton Dean

3 COVER STORY Reared in Hominy, Oklahoma, Lark graduated from high school in the midst of the Great Depression. At age 17 he took a job with the General Accounting Office in Washington and financed his studies at George Washington University and Southeastern University Law School, from which he received his law degree in He took and passed the District of Columbia bar examination just prior to his 21st birthday. Prof. Murl A. Larkin (left) with good friend and fellow faculty member, Reed Quilliam. 4 Professor Murl A. Larkin Retires Most persons would be more than satisfied with one highly distinguished career. Murl A. Larkin has had two. Most persons would consider forty or so years of productive work a sufficient contribution to our society. Murl Larkin's span embraces fifty-five years and he's not through yet. The first time I met Lark was nearly a decade before we became colleagues on the faculty of the Texas Tech University School of Law. The year was about 1960 and I was a young Lubbock lawyer taking my annual two weeks of Naval Reserve training at a Navy Law Seminar in New Orleans. Captain Larkin, then Assistant Judge Advocate General of the Navy and head of its appellate review section, was one of the principal lecturers at the seminar. It would not be true to say that Lark and I became fast friends during this visit to the Crescent City, although that relationship would develop in later years. I am certain that we both did our share of wining and dining in the French Quarter, but Navy lieutenants and captains generally travel in different circles after hours. It would be true, however, to say that I came away from the meeting highly impressed with Lark as a man, as a lawyer, and as a teacher of the law. I have the same feelings about him today. In the fall of 1968 Captain Larkin retired from the Navy and became Professor Larkin, embarking on his second eminent career. He joined the Texas Tech law faculty in the second year of the Law School's existence, and has been a guiding force in its development for 21 years. He retired from the Law School in May, 1979, and we will miss him greatly. Shortly after Pearl Harbor Larkin was commissioned an ensign in the Naval Reserve and soon was called to active duty. After a brief tour as engineering officer aboard a patrol gunship assigned to the Chief of Naval Operations, he was ordered to the battleship USS New Jersey, which was to become his home for the rest of World War II. As a gunnery officer and starboard battery director, Larkin participated in many of the major sea battles of the Pacific Theater, including Saipan, the Marianas, Iwo Jima, and the Leyte Gulf, and earned 11 battle stars. After his release from active duty Larkin returned to Washington where he met and won the hand of his lovely wife, Sue, who has enhanced his dual careers with her charm and grace. After working briefly as a civilian lawyer for the Navy Department, he was commissioned in the Judge Advocate General Corps of the regular Navy, in which he spent the next 22 years. The Larkins have one daughter, Barbara, who lives in Tulsa. Duty assignments took the Larkins to California, the Philippines, Rhode Island, Hawaii, and back to Washington as the Navy's second-ranking JAG officer. It was while serving as Academic Director of the Naval Justice School that then-commander Larkin got his first taste "of the strong personal and professional satisfaction that I get from law teaching," which lead to his second career. As Fleet Legal Officer, Pacific Fleet, Larkin made inspection tours in virtually every far eastern country in which United States military interests were present. In his last and most prestigious assignment, as Assistant Judge Advocate General, he was awarded the Legion of Merit. Some of Professor Larkin's most vivid memories involve the earliest years of the Law School, especially those in the old barracks buildings near the football stadium. "The soundproofing in those classrooms was atrocious," he recalls. "I remember trying to teach Corporations while Justin Smith was teaching Torts next door. Justin was a classroom wit, and every few minutes his students would break out in riotous laughter. It was hard to get my class back on track again." He also recalls Smith showing his class some extremely gruesome photographs from an autopsy. "One woman student fainted. He had her picked up and went on with his class." The very first graduating class at the Law School is the one that Professor Larkin remembers best. "They were second-year students when I got here, but we only had about 110 enrolled in the Law School at that time and I got to know most of them personally. They were a somewhat older group, and many of them had had successful careers in other fields. The faculty and students were very close-knit and those students worked as hard as any I have ever seen. They were largely responsible for getting this Law School off on the right footing." (Note: That first class, of 56 students, produced a Presidential Scholar, Charles Gentry, and the five highest grades on the Texas bar examination, the only time in history that the top five grades have come from one law school.) Professor Larkin has served under all four deans that the Law School has had, and thinks that each made a special contribution to the development of the school. "Dick Amandes was fantastic in recruiting faculty and was administratively outstanding. Frank Elliott contributed to the school through his stature as an author and a scholar. Byron Fullerton was very likeable and we benefitted from his wide contacts in the legal profession and his closeness with the University administration. Frank Newton combines many of these qualities and may be the best all-around dean that we have had." Professor Larkin recalls many pleasant contacts with Al Allison, Levelland attorney, former Texas Tech regent, and the man most responsible for the founding of the Texas Tech Law School. "I met him right after I came here." Larkin remembers. "He was our greatest fan. He would go overboard for the Law School in everything, including his money and his time." Three brief leaves of absence have punctuated Professor Larkin's 21 years at Texas Tech. In 1974 he was a visiting professor at Franklin Pierce Law Center in New Hampshire. In he served as Senior Legislative Attorney in the Congressional Research Service, Library of Congress. In 1984 he was the Ben J. Altheimer Distinguished Visiting Professor of Law at the University of Arkansas-Little Rock. Larkin's primary teaching areas have been Evidence, Procedure (both civil and criminal) and Trial Advocacy. I remember going into the law library soon after the new law school building was completed in 1970, and encountering law student (now State Representative) Jim Rudd, who was shaking his head in amazement. He had just come from a Larkin class, and his comment was: "That guy (Professor Larkin) sure knows his Evidence and he really lays it out. If you can't learn Evidence from Larkin you just can't learn it." His feelings have been shared by many over the years. A prolific author (several books and numerous scholarly articles) in the Evidence area, Larkin was a key member of the State Bar committee that developed, recommended, and continues to monitor, the present Texas Rules of Evidence. He was named Jack F. Maddox Professor of Law at the Texas Tech University Law School in 1985, in recognition of his achievements in teaching, writing and public service. One would think that after completing two careers Lark would really retire. That will not happen, however, for this man of immense mental energy. He and Sue will move to Tulsa, where they have a home, and he will maintain a law office and keep up the supplements for five of the books that he has authored. He also is finalizng plans to be an adjunct professor at the University of Tulsa Law School. I arrived on the law faculty one semester after Lark did, and have had the privilege of having him as a colleague for more than two decades. One could not ask for a better one. He has been a good friend, a fine teacher and scholar, and an important contributor to the governance of the school. He should be remembered as one of the major blocks upon which the Law School was built. The esteem in which Professor Larkin is held by the students was much in evidence at the 1989 May hooding ceremony. When a speaker noted Larkin's retirement from the faculty the graduating seniors spontaneously rose as one and accorded him a prolonged ovation. It was a fitting tribute to a fine man. by Reed Quilliam 5

4 ALUMNI SPOTLIGHT FACULTY NEWS The Right Place At the Right Time Krahmer Continues Computing & CLE 6 Any law school placement director can confirm that finding a job after law school is a combination of perseverance and being in the right place at the right time. Ted Brabham ('89) will tell you that certainly is true for him. Ted is joining the largest law firm in Florida as a result of just such a combination. His story begins with one of Dean Frank Newton's plane rides in the fall of Dean Newton was assigned a seat next to Joe Klock, Managing Partner of Steel, Hector & Davis of Miami, Florida. The firm, headquartered in Miami, has branch offices in Boca Raton, Tallahassee, Palm Beach and West Palm Beach. Dean Newton, never shy to promote the Texas Tech School of Law, convinced Mr. Klock to add Texas Tech to his recruiting tour of Texas law schools. Arrangements were made and the Florida firm interviewed on campus. Ted, however, had not signed up to interview and was playing dominoes in the Commons when he heard about Steel, Hector and Davis. Rushing home to shower and shave, Ted's wife read the firm resume to him while he dressed. The rest, they say, is history. Ted interviewed and was one of two Texas law students selected for a flyback interview. (The other Texas student was also from Texas Tech. None of the other schools had students receiving second interviews.) Ted accepted a full summer clerkship with Steel, Hector & Davis in 1988 and joined the West Palm Beach office as an associate in June, This is not the first time Ted has been in the right place at the right time. While a student at Southern Methodist University, Ted was Dean of the Student Senate when a petition to have a gay student organization funded by the university was presented. Ted's well-publicized stand opposing university funding for the organization resulted in a 1982 appearance on the Merv Griffin show, a 1983 hour-long appearance on the Phil Donahue show and an HBO documentary in Noted lecturer Zig Ziglar helped Ted prepare for the Donahue show. Ted served on the Texas Juvenile Justice Commission from 1982 to 1985, making him (at the age of 21) the youngest person ever to serve on a state-wide commission. The commission administered an $8,000,000 budget and allocated funds for the various programs such as the Texas War on Drugs program, the Crime Stoppers Program and the Interschool Suspension Program. Raised by grandparents in Atlanta, Texas, Ted has always wanted to be a lawyer. He is quick to point out that his legal education easily matched the 33 other Steel, Hector & Davis clerks who represent every "major" law school on both coasts. While at Tech, Ted participated in Moot Court, Mock Trial and was on the 1988 National Championship Client Counseling Team. Married during law school to the former Penny Gilmore, Ted added add fatherhood to his list of accomplishments. The Brabhams had their first child in early June, a boy named Vasco Ted Brabham III. During the spring, Professor John Krahmer was active in various Continuing Legal Education programs around the state. He participated in the 2nd Annual EI Paso DTP A/Consumer Law Institute in February and planned and moderated the 12th Annual Banking Law Institute held this year in San Antonio at the end of March. He also spoke at the Annual Corpus Christi Bar Association CLE Program at the end of April and at the State Bar of Texas Advanced DTP A/Consumer Law Institute in San Antonio at the end of May. Despite an active speaking schedule, Professor Krahmer has also continued his writing in the area of commercial law with the publication of supplements to Vernon's Texas Code Forms Annotated and to Texas Practice - Methods of Practice. He was once again the author of the Commercial Transactions Survey in the Southwestern Law Journal and has also been the editor of the monthly "Texas Bank Lawyer". published by the Texas Association of Bank Counsel. Along with former Professor Bob Wood, Professor Krahmer is an active member of the Uniform Commercial Code Committee of the State Bar Business Law Section which is engaged in a study of a newly proposed Uniform Commercial Code Article 2A governing Lease Transactions. He is also a member of the Consumer Law Council of the State Bar Consumer Law Section. Professor Krahmer has continued his interest in computers and associated electronic gadgetry and may now be the easiest member of the faculty to contact by day or night with telephone numbers at (Voice), (Modem), or (FAX). He does not yet have a cellular phone, but has been heard to mutter that he could teach his classes from Hawaii if he could get a proper satellite link. Professor John Krahmer Baker Selected For TV Appearance Professor Tom Baker has been selected to participate in C-SPAN'S Second Annual Seminar for Professors. He is one of only 30 university professors selected nationally. The invited attendees will spend two days in Washington, D.C., learning effective methods of integrating C-SP AN into coursework and related issues such as copyrights, videotape editing and programming. The attendees also will participate in a live nationallytelevised call-in show. A reception and banquet will be held at the Library of Congress. The Seminar is funded by the Benton Foundation. Professor Baker says, "I am looking forward to learning more about the potential for using C SPAN programming. C-SPAN broadcasts programs on the judiciary, congressional committee hearings (like the Bork confirmation hearing), and speeches by jurists and others that might be edited down for in-class use or placed on reserve for out of class viewing in the first year Constitutional Law course. Students in my Constitutional Law Seminar could view interviews and commentary on the cases they are 'mooting' in that course." 7
