In 1926 Dr. Maurice H. Merrill joined the faculty of the University of Nebraska Law School and took over the course in Agency previously taught by a most eminent authority in that field, Dean Warren A. Seavey. The meticulous scholarship of Dean Seavey undoubtedly was an inspiration to his successor, for in the years that followed Professor Merrill, both in the classroom and in print, demonstrated his complete grasp of the subject of Agency. Within a year Professor Merrill published the concluding section of an important series of articles on Agency commenced by Dean Seavey which had appeared in early issues of the Nebraska Law Bulletin. Ten years later, in 1936, Dr. Merrill published two significant articles in which he sketched in broad outline the "anatomy of notice" and "unforgettable knowledge," which together were a partial synopsis of the treatise finally published in 1952. Former students and lawyers in Nebraska and Oklahoma, long familiar with Dr. Merrill's outstanding scholarship and analytical ability, will receive personal pleasure and satisfaction in the appearance of Notice.
