In Memoriam: Professor George Dargo

RIEDMAN
 t a time when many academics are winding down, my colleagueGeorge Dargo, who passed away in January of this year, becameenviably prolific. Before joining the New England Law faculty, back when he was a professor of history, George wrote a number ofimportant books about legal history, including
Roots of the Republic: A NewPerspective on Early American Constitutionalism
 ,
1
 
Law in the New Republic:Private Law and the Public Estate
 ,
2
and, in between,
 Jefferson’s Louisiana:Politics and the Clash of Legal Traditions
.
3
 
 Jefferson’s Louisiana
has been called“undoubtedly one of the most important studies ever of the LouisianaPurchase and its impact on the politics and legal culture of Louisiana.”
4
 After he joined the New England Law faculty in 1983, Georgecontinued writing about legal history; his work in this time included
 AHistory of the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit
 ,
5
and anarticle on the famous Sarah Roberts case, which appeared in 1997 in the journal of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court Historical Society.
6
 For nearly a decade thereafter, George focused his energies on theclassroom and earned a reputation as a superlative classroom teacher. Hetaught courses in constitutional law, administrative law, freedom ofexpression, and law and literature. During this time, his writing consistedprimarily of sharp letters to the editor about events of the day.
