Campaign Funding Priorities and Naming Opportunities

The Roy M. Mersky Memorial Fund

UT Law School established the Roy M. Mersky Memorial Fund to honor the memory of its beloved longtime director of legal research. Mersky, who served as head of the Jamail Center for Legal Research for forty-two years, passed away in May, 2008. In gratitude for Mersky’s profound contributions to UT Law School, the Tarlton Law Library’s Special Collections Center and Rare Books Room will be named in his honor. The Roy M. Mersky Memorial Fund will be used to complete a major renovation and modernization of the special collections facilities, and the Fund will also support the rare books lecture series he founded.
