Admiralty Bar Loses Important Member in Death of William Tetley

Posted by John K. Fulweiler | Jul 02, 2014 | 0 Comments

Yesterday, the admiralty bar lost an interesting, hardworking and important contributor. William Tetley was an admiralty lawyer practicing in Canada, an academic, a politician and author of numerous maritime law texts. I will remember Mr. Tetley for having so kindly responded to an inquiry I made many years ago. A handwritten note and a signed copy of his book on maritime liens lay on my New York desk when I got to work one morning. Whilst I never met Mr. Tetley, just as how a person's true character leaks through when you take them sailing, I think you can glean a lot from such a sturdy response to a young associate laboring in a maritime law firm.

Good luck, sir.
