Wednesday, September 17, 2008Dear Alumni and Friends of the USC Gould School of Law,
It is with tremendous sadness and sense of loss that I have to report the passing of my friend and colleague, Charlie Whitebread. Charlie died yesterday from cancer. He had been a law professor for more than 40 years, teaching his last students this past spring.
Many of you know how tragic this loss is to our law school community. For those who did not have the good fortune to have Charlie as a teacher or as a friend, he exemplified those attributes that our law school holds dear. He was a phenomenal classroom teacher, an engaged scholar, and a tireless advocate for our students and for justice. I have attached a bio which describes some of Charlie's accomplishments, though no words can adequately convey the life force that was Charlie Whitebread.
Many have already asked about our plans to recognize Charlie's contributions to USC. We are currently setting a date for a celebration of Charlie's life, and we will inform you once we have the date, time and venue set. Some of Charlie’s closest friends approached me asking if they could do something to honor Charlie’s memory. They decided to set up a Charles H. Whitebread scholarship fund at USC Law because they knew how much Charlie cared about our students.
With much sadness,
Make a contribution to the Charles H. Whitebread Scholarship Fund
