S.F.C. (Toby) Milsom (1923-2016)

S F C (Toby) Milsom (credit)
We're grateful to David Seipp, Boston University Law, for sharing with us the sad news that Professor Stroud Francis Charles (Toby) Milsom has died.  Professor Seipp writes:
Readers of the legal history blog should know that Professor S.F.C. (Toby) Milsom passed away on February 24, 2016, at the age of 92.  His extraordinary contributions to the history of the common law will be celebrated, revised, revived, and debated for at least as long in the future.  Toby Milsom can still be heard in a series of conversations about his life and career [here.]
We googled upon an illustration of Professor Seipp’s point, if anyone needs one, in Robert C. Palmer’s statement of the objectives of his English Legal History course at Houston Law.

I found a used (seemingly unread) copy of Milsom's Studies in the History of the Common Law (London: The Hambledon Press, 1985) at the Book Den in Santa Barbara some years ago and recall feeling I had discovered a precious jewel!
