  Helene Stratman-Thomas Blotz, as-
sistant professor of music-came to the
University in 1930 as an instructor in
music. In 1946 she was named assistant
professor of music with a joint appoint-
ment in the UW College of Letters and
Science and the Extension Division.
Over the past three decades she has
taught classes in harmony, counterpoint,
music history and appreciation. In 1940
she began traveling up and down the
state, collecting folk music illustrating
the state's history. In 1960 some of this
music was issued on an LP record by the
Library of Congress, with a booklet
written by Mrs. Blotz describing the
historical background of the music.
   Carl M. Bogholt, professor of phi-
losophy-was the chief architect of the
University's current undergraduate and
graduate programs in philosophy and
has taught courses ranging from the in-
troductory to advanced seminars for stu-
dents working on doctorates in agricul-
tural economics. But his major interests
are in political and social philosophy.
He attended Massachusetts Agricultural
College (now the University of Massa-
chusetts)  at Amherst and won      his
Bachelor of Science from that institu-
tion in 1921. He taught English there
for three years and public speaking in
the Lakewood High School in Ohio for
a year before coming to Wisconsin to
study and teach philosophy in 1926. He
has been teaching at the University
every year since Wisconsin awarded him
the Ph.D. degree in 1933.
  Ray Andrews Brown, professor of
law-has been on the UW Law School
Wisconsin Alumnus, July, 1961

cluded service in U.S. government agen-
cies, honors from other educational in-
stitutions, and the national presidency
from 1937-40 of the Order of Coif,
honorary fraternity of the legal profes-
sion which initiates the upper 10 per
cent of law graduates each year into its
ranks. In 1957-58 Prof. Brown received
the Distinguished Professor Legion Lex
award while he was a visiting professor
of law at the University of Southern
California. His authoritative writings in
his special interest areas include numer-
ous articles in legal journals and three

   Charles Bunn, professor of law-
came to Wisconsin 27 years ago as a
professor of law after more than a dec-
ade of law practice in St. Paul as law
clerk, junior partner, and full partner
in a firm which bore a Bunn name for
three generations. The author of numer-
ous articles and reviews, he has written
one  of the few    "Lawyer's Bibles,"
Jurisdiction and Practice of U.S. Courts,
the sixth edition of which was published
in 1959. In the spring of 1950, Bunn,
and others, completed the rough draft
of another monumental volume, A Uni-
form Commercial Code, which is now
in print and used extensively by stu-
dents, lawyers, courts, businesses, and to
further the studies of the American
Law Institute. Prof. Bunn is retiring
early to do research in public and com-
mercial law for the American Law Insti-
tute. He will be a lecturer in law at the
