Joseph M. Hartfield Fund


The Joseph M. Hartfield Professorships in Law were funded by Mr. Hartfield and the John Jay and Eliza Jane Watson Foundation and support two chairholders. Joseph Hartfield (Law 1902) was senior partner in the Wall Street law firm of White & Case and a director of the Watson Foundation, now known as the Hyde and Watson Foundation. A Board of Visitors member from 1956 until 1963, Mr. Hartfield served on the Alumni Association Board of Managers and was president of the Law School Alumni Association. Bequests from Mr. Hartfield, who died in 1964, financed numerous School initiatives.
