Chicago Tribune Obituary for George Anastaplo '51
From the Chicago Tribune:
George Anastaplo, JD, PhD, born November 7, 1925 (St. Louis, MO), deceased February 14, 2014 (Chicago, IL), of metastatic prostate cancer. His parents were immigrants from Greece, Theodore Anastaplo and Margarita Syriopoulou. He is survived by his wife and companion for more than 65 years, Sara Prince Anastaplo, and by four children and eight grandchildren. His proudest achievements were his service as a navigator in the U.S. Army Air Corps in WWII, his long and ultimately unsuccessful contest with the Illinois Bar, which enabled him to argue his own case before the U.S. Supreme Court at the age of 35, and his publications. He greatly enjoyed engaging with his students at Rosary College (now Dominican University), the Loyola University Chicago School of Law, and the University of Chicago's Basic Program of Liberal Education for Adults. Private services. A memorial service will be held at a future date. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to The University of Chicago, and mailed to: The George Anastaplo Basic Program Lecturer Fund, Graham School of Continuing Liberal and Professional Studies, The University of Chicago, 1427 E. 60th Street, Chicago, IL 60637.
