IN MEMORY OF JOHN JAY OSBORN '63

John was just inducted into the Avenue of Giants in May 2022, unable to attend because of his illness. In his final year at Harvard Law School, his writing elective resulted in "the Paper Chase," a definitive novel, Hollywood movie and TV series that helped humanize the experience of law school. He was just 26 years old and at the beginning of a long, productive career. He later went on to write "The Associates" which also went on to become a TV series. All this while, he continued to practice and teach law.   John Jay Osborn Obit
