Professor Clarence Morrow received his undergraduate and law degrees from Tulane in 1931 and 1934, respectively. He received the LL.D. from Yale University in 1938, when he became a member of the faculty of Tulane School of Law. He was in charge of admissions to the School of Law for many years and served as Acting Dean in 1951-52. At the time of his death in 1968, he was secretary of the Tulane Law Alumni Club.
The endowment for this scholarship originated from the proceeds of a life insurance policy which Professor Morrow had made payable to Tulane. Gifts from Professor Morrow’s friends and former students contributed to the endowment, enabling the Law School to make scholarship awards to deserving students.
