Warner Fuller
Assistant Professor of Law, 1932-1936

Warner Fuller taught classes at Duke Law related to business and corporations for four years.  He was one of the novice faculty hired by Dean Justin Miller in response to the economy’s effect on the university’s finances. 

Fuller completed a B.S. at the University of Oregon in 1924 and a J.D. at Yale in 1927.  After graduating from Yale he stayed on for a year as a research assistant.  From 1928 to 1932 he worked at the San Fransisco firm McCutchen, Olney, Mannon & Green. Fuller left Duke in 1936 for a full professorship at Washington University in St. Louis.  In 1942 he was named acting dean of the law school there, and in 1944 became dean.  During WWII Fuller also served as compliance commissioner of the St. Louis War Production Board, and was a public representative of the St. Louis War Labor Board.  After the war ended Fuller became Vice President and General Counsel of the Terminal Railroad Association of St. Louis.  He remained in that position until his death in 1957.
