Professor Frank Slagle passed away on September 24 after a lengthy battle with cancer. Frank joined the Law School faculty in 1984. He was a great teacher, a passionate public servant, and a joy to know personally and professionally. He is survived by his wife Ruth Ann, who is a school principal, and daughters Jennifer, who is in her final year of law school, and Elizabeth, whose future plans include medical school.
Funeral arrangements are not yet final and will be posted here as soon as available. Contributions to a scholarship endowment in Frank's memory may be made to the USD Foundation.
Although I never met Frank, I was delighted to profile here his receipt of the 2006 Professor of the Year Award at South Dakota.
