"This is a terrible loss for the Law College," said Joan Howarth, dean of MSU College of Law. "Al Storrs exemplified the highest values of our law school and our profession. With his passing, we have lost a wonderful teacher, a masterful and inspiring leader, and an exceptional man of principle, vision, and grace."
Professor Storrs had been a highly-respected member of the MSU College of Law faculty since 1987. He was chair of the Taxation Law concentration program and proudly served as faculty advisor to the Black Law Students Association (BLSA). Professor Storrs taught Basic Income Taxation, Corporate Income Taxation, and Deferred and Executive Compensation at the Law College, teaching most recently in the fall 2009 semester. ...
Professor Storrs is survived by his wife, Regina, and their two children, Alvin and Ashley; his oldest daughters, Verna Nevels and Heather Holloway; his granddaughter, Ashlyn; and his dear mother, Amye Davis. Those who wish to share fond memories or extend condolences to the family may send them to The Family of Professor Alvin Storrs, c/o Michigan State University College of Law, 368 Law College Building, East Lansing, MI 48824-1300. ...
