On Nov. 12, 2010 Ted Kheel died at age 96, here. I never meet Mr. Kheel, but has a labor lawyer growing up and practicing in New York, he had a tremendous influence on me. He was involved in every major labor dispute in the 60's, 70's, 80's and 90's. He is the author of a multi-vol. treatise on labor law and was a named partner in Battle, Fowler and Kheel which later merged into Paul Hastings. When I was a student at the ILR School, I remember researching union information in the Kheel Center which was a depository of information housed in Catherwood Library.
Kheel was also involved in NYC politics. He was a frequent guest on T.V. and many people will miss him.
