"YLS Associate Deal Carroll D. Stevens calls Mr Duffy's work 'very important.'
'The Yale Law School, with you as our guide and interpreter, is acting to capture and preserve the essence of its legacy for the mid to late 20th century,' Mr Stevens wrote to Mr Duffy a few days before Alumni Weekend. 'Because of your great talent for rendering those who embody our best institutional values, there is now a greater hope that our noblest traditions will be known and understood by future generations.'
'I doubt you have ever thought of yourself as [a] historian or a cultural anthropologist, but you are,' continued the note, 'in addition to being one of the finest artists I have ever encountered.'"
