Dwight Opperman, an Iowa native, Drake University Law School graduate and significant donor to the university, died yesterday at the age of 89. Opperman is the former chairman and CEO of West Publishing Co., one of the world's largest legal publishers, and helped develop Westlaw, an online research tool for the legal profession. At Drake, he endowed the Dwight D. Opperman Lecture in Constitutional Law, which has brought eight present and former U.S. Supreme Court justices to campus. He was also a major contributor to Opperman Hall and Law Library. For more information on Opperman's life, click here.
