Terry Frazier

With deep regret, the editors report the sudden death of Terry Frazier on September 6, 2001.  Prof. Frazier served as the literature contributing editor of “Keeping Current—Property.”  For the past decade, Prof. Frazier taught courses in real property and environmental law at the Mississippi College School of Law, recently serving also as associate dean. Before turning to academic pursuits, Prof. Frazier practiced with Quarles & Brady in Milwaukee. He is survived by his wife Esther, son Kyle, and daughters Carrie and Heidi. Prof. Frazier’s contributions to Probate & Property were always apt and insightful. He will be missed.
