HARVEY
William Burnett Harvey, law professor and former Boston University General Counsel, died Wednesday, October 27, 1999 at the Beth Israel-Deaconess Medical Center after a brief illness. He was seventy-seven. Mr. Harvey was born in Greenville, South Carolina and raised in Erwin, Tennessee. he graduated from Wake Forest College in 1943, for which he later served as a member of its Board of Visitors. He served in the United States Navy during World War II in both the Atlantic and Pacific theaters. After the war he received a law degree from the University of Michigan. His legal career began at the Washington law firm of Hogan & Hartson. In 1951 he joined the faculty at the University of Michigan School of Law. During his 15 years on the Michigan faculty, he and Professor John P. Dawson authored a still widely used contracts casebook. In the early 1960's his strong interest in legal philosophy and the values that guide the development of legal systems prompted a research focus on newly emerging post-colonial African law and legal institutions. That scholarly work resulted in an in an invitation to serve as the first Dean of the Law School at the University of Ghana from 1962 to 1964. His two year commitment in Ghana was cut short when political turmoil in the country resulted in his deportation. His work in Ghana produced a book, ''Law and Social Change in Ghana'' and numerous scholarly articles. His interest in African legal systems endured. In the mid-nineteen seventies he published ''An Introduction to the Legal Systems of East Africa'', the first comprehensive work of its kind. In addition to his substantial body of work on contracts and African law, he wrote extensively about universities and academic freedom. In 1966, Mr. Harvey left the University of Michigan to assume the deanship of the Indiana University School of Law at Bloomington. As Dean, he substantially strengthened and diversified the law faculty and student body. however, his advocacy of constructive engagement with student activists, expression of view on political issues such as opposition to the Vietnam war, and resistance to external influence on Law School admissions and appointments decisions put him at odds with the conservative University administration and state bar. In 1971, while on sabbatical in Kenya, his resignation as dean was requested and submitted sparking student protests. After a year as a Visiting Professor at Duke University Law School, Mr. Harvey joined the Boston University Law School Faculty in 1973. In 1982, while continuing teaching, research, and writing, Mr. Harvey became General Counsel of Boston University, building a top quality legal office and serving as an important advisor to then-Boston University President John R. Silber. He retired as General Counsel in 1987, while continuing to teach at the Law School. Mr. Harvey leaves his wife, Mary Louise of Boston; a daughter, Anne Taylor of Newton; a son, Kent of Hamden, Connecticut; and two granddaughters, Rachel and Hannah. A memorial service will be held at the Emmanuel Church, Newbury Street, Boston. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in Mr. Harvey's memory to Wake Forest University, Winston-Salem, North Carolina, for the purpose of student financial aid.
