Franklyn Haiman

In the fall 2015 issue of Northwestern magazine, I was saddened to read of the passing of Professor Emeritus Franklyn Haiman (Passings, Alumni Life, page 76). He was a soft-spoken but conscience-driven champion of the First Amendment and freedom of thought and speech. His was one of the influences that sent me with my Medill degree to Northwestern Law School and a life of the law. I shall always be indebted to him.
Ed Bryant ’63, ’67 JD
