Kurt Schwerin, professor of law and law librarian emeritus, died Dec. 21  in Chicago. He was 93.
Mr. Schwerin, who was preceded in death by his wife, Gertrude, watched the law library grow and mature since his start there in 1948.
His funeral was held Dec. 24, at the Piser Weinstein Menorah Chapels. A memorial service will be held at the School of Law, but the date has not been determined yet.
Mr. Schwerin retired not once, but twice, as law librarian. He was named professor emeritus when he first retired in 1970. Two years later his successor resigned and Mr. Schwerin took over until Dec. 31 1973, when a replacement could be found.
He is the author of several works, including "Classifications for International Law and Relations," "International Law Bibliography" and "Historia Judaica Index, Vols. 1-20." His interest in Jewish contributions to German intellectual history and culture earned him the Officer's Cross of the German Order of Merit in 1965.
Mr. Schwerin also co-founded and became president of the Leo Beck Institute's Chicago chapter in 1959.
