Harrison Foundation Professorship in Medicine and Law

1991

The Harrison Foundation Professorship in Medicine and Law was funded with a gift from the foundation. The professorship supports a scholar whose work explores legal issues relating to the practice of medicine and who holds a joint appointment in the School of Law and the School of Medicine. David A. Harrison III (Col '39, Law '41), who died in 2002, and his late wife, Mary Anderson Harrison, created the Harrison Foundation, which has financed professorships not only in the School of Medicine but also in the School of Law and in the College of Arts & Sciences.
