Death Of Louis Del Duca (Penn State)

Del DucaLongtime Penn State-Carlisle Tax Prof Louis Del Duca died over the Thanksgiving Holiday.  A memorial service will be held on Saturday, December 12 at 11:00 a.m. at St. Patrick’s Church in Carlisle.  For a tribute to Professor Del Duca, see Dedication: Louis F. Del Duca, Edward N. Polisher Distinguished Faculty Scholar, 117 Penn St. L. Rev. 1337 (2013):

On September 1, 1956, Louis F. Del Duca joined the faculty of the Dickinson School of Law. ... Fifty-seven years, eight Law School Deans, four Chief Justices, twenty-nine Associate Justices, and eleven Presidents later, Professor Del Duca is retiring. As the longest-serving faculty member in law school history, “the Duke” leaves behind several generations of students who studied under his tutelage. ...

In 1963, the Senior Class dedicated its yearbook, Res Ipsa Loquitur, to Professor Del Duca. In the dedication, the editors and staff specifically recognized “his enthusiasm for the law, his sense of professional responsibility and the efforts which he has made to instill these qualities in us.”  The editors and staff of the 2012-2013 Penn State Law Review—recognizing those same qualities—respectfully dedicate this issue of the Law Review to him, and wish him all the best in his retirement.
