      Obituary - The Milwaukee Journal Saturday April 20, 1935
      Lynn S. Pease, 75, attorney and educator commonly credited with being the founder of the Marquette university law school, died Friday at the Milwaukee hospital. He was president of the Clum Manufacturing Co. here. Mr. Pease was born in Oxford, Wis., descended from colonial stock and a member of the seventh generation of his family to be born on American soil. His father, Spencer A. Pease, held an important place in Wisconsin affairs as a lawyer, a physician, a journalist and a legislator. After attending school in Montello, Wis., Lynn Pease served as principal of the graded school in that village before entering the University of Wisconsin. He received his Bachelor of Arts degree from the university in 1886 and returned to Montello to become principal of the high school and to work on the Montello Express, a paper that his father owned. In 1889 he went back to the university to enter the law school, where he was graduated in 1891 Opinion Won Fame While a student he was active in literary and forensic organizations. Members of the state bar association and of the judiciary recall the famous "moot court" at the university at which Mr. Pease presided when a question of law regarding the right of state treasurers to keep interest on state funds in their possession, was argued. The opinion written by Mr. Pease was published in a number of legal journals and was accepted by the law school as his graduating thesis. After graduation Mr. Pease became superintendent of the state school for the blind at Janesville, Wis., remaining there until 1895, when he was appointed lecturer at the University of Wisconsin. He came to Milwaukee in 1896 to practice law here. Soon afterward he was employed to investigate conditions at the industrial school for boys at Waukesha.
      Although there was considerable clamor over his appointment, since he was a Democrat and the state administration was Republican, his investigation was credited with making education rather than punishment the dominant feature of the institution.
      Law School Lecturer
      A lecturer at the Milwaukee Law school, Mr. Pease had an active part in the change that made that school the college of law at Marquette University in 1907. He was a member of Psi Upsilon, Social fraternity; of Phi Delta Phi, legal fraternity; of the Milwaukee bar and the Wisconsin bar association; of the Milwaukee Press club and the Milwaukee athletic club, and of Masonic bodies here. For some time he was president of the University of Wisconsin Alumni association.
