Quintin Johnstone — property professor extraordinaire at Yale, employee of the Roosevelt Administration, giver of Judge Guido Calabrasi's only "B", and immortalizer in the classic way not to establish a metes-and-bounds description (“about one half a rod more from the stump of the big hemlock tree where Philo Blake killed the bear . . . .”) has died. Professor Johnstone taught until he was 96 and passed away at age 99. His obituary is available at http://www.law.yale.edu/news/18560.htm.
