Hunton and Williams Professorship


The Hunton & Williams Professorship in Law was funded by the colleagues and families of Thomas Benjamin Gay and Eppa Hunton IV, two partners in the Richmond-based firm. Mr. Gay (Law 1906) was president of the Law School Alumni Association, a member of the Board of Visitors, and vice president and counsel for the Law School Foundation. He died in 1983. Mr. Hunton (College '25, Law '27), a senior partner of the firm at the time of his death in 1976, was a member of the Alumni Board of Trustees of the University of Virginia Endowment Fund.
