Professor Anthoine ’49 Turns 90

Summer 2011

In June, longtime Columbia Law School Professor Robert Anthoine ’49 celebrated his 90th birthday. Anthoine, a renowned tax law expert, joined the faculty in 1952, only three years after graduating from the Law School. He fondly recalls serving on the admissions committee that welcomed Ruth Bader Ginsburg ’59 to Columbia and continues to meet with former students he inspired during his time on the faculty. Anthoine stopped teaching at the Law School in 1990 after an impactful four-decade career in legal education.
