When Floyd Fulton Feeney died unexpectedly of a cough that had progressed to pneumonia on January 8, 2019, the School of Law lost a brilliant scholar, beloved colleague, and legendary teacher. The Homer G. and Ann Berryhill Angelo Professor of Law for International Legal and Communications Studies, Floyd had joined the faculty in January 1968 and taught his first classes that fall, just two years after the school admitted its first students. Fifty-one years later, at the time of his death, he was grading his students’ fall semester criminal law exams and preparing for his summer 2019 research and his spring semester course in election law.
