Frank Edward Cooper
Law School's Law Quadrangle Notes

Frank E. Cooper, professor at Michigan for the past 22 years, had taught regularly until the day of his death, February 16, 1968, even though he had been in poor health for some time. He had been a member of the Detroit Law firm of Beaumont, Smith, and Harris since graduating from the Law School in 1934.

Cooper was an authority on legal method and administrative law, having served as a consultant to the Hoover Commission and as a member of several important committees concerning regulatory agency law.

"Professor Cooper was a man of rare quality," Dean Francis Allen said recently. "He combined a scholarly and an active career with unusual success, and each aspect of his life supplemented and strengthened the other. He will be greatly missed at this school."
