New Haven, C.T., 24 April. Theodore Salisbury Woolsey, 77, LL.D., professor emeritus of international law at Yale university since 1807, died at his home here tonight. He was the son of Theodore Dwight Woolsey, eminent Greek scholar and professor, and former president of Yale University. Death was caused by pneumonia.
Prof Woolsey was a direct descendant of George Woolsey, who came from England to Massachusetts in 1623. His ancestors included Jonathan Edwards and Rev. Thomas Hooker, founder of the city of Hartford, who was instrumental in framing the world's first written constitution. Prof Woolsey was born at New Haven, October 22, 1862, and at an early age the problems of international law possessed a fascination for him. He entered Yale in 1867 and graduated with the degree of B.A., in 1872. He added the degree of M.A. in 1877. In college he was a member of Pai Upsilon fraternity and Skull and Bones. He attended Yale Law School, where he was graduated in 1876 with the degree of LL.B. In 1903 Brown university honoured him with the degree of LL. D.
Following his graduation from the Yale Law school he was appointed instructor in public law in the university in 1877. Two years later he received the appointment to the professorship. Aside from classroom and lecture work, he was a conspicuous figure in public affairs through his writings on topics relative to international law and he became a leading authority when mooted points arose.4
