Henry L. and Grace Doherty Professorship


The Henry L. and Grace Doherty Charitable Foundation Professorships in Law were endowed by the foundation, which also created the Law School's Center for Oceans Law and Policy. Doherty trustee Walter L. Brown (College '24, Law '26), who was instrumental in creating these chairs, was vice president and general counsel for Western Electric Company. The first president of the Law School Foundation, he was counsel to the Law School Foundation Trust upon its creation in 1952. Mr. Brown, who died in 1975, was a member of the Alumni Board of Trustees of the University of Virginia Endowment Fund.
