FEATURED TRIBUTES
THEODORE K. WARNER JR., a former railroad executive in whose name a professorship was created at the Law School, died last February. He was 95.

Mr. Warner was vice president of the Pennsylvania Railroad and later president of the Canada Southern Railroad until his retirement in 1970. In retirement, Warner was named president of the Independence Foundation, a Philadelphia-based private foundation which supports nurse-managed primary healthcare, culture and the arts, and public interest legal services. In honor of Mr. Warner’s service to the organization, the Foundation endowed the Theodore K. Warner Jr. Professorship in Business Law at Penn Law School in 1998.

He spent 30 years with the Pennsylvania Railroad (later Penn Central), rising to the position of vice president of accounting and taxes. Mr. Warner also served as of counsel at Duane Morris & Heckscher, before becoming counsel to Harper & Driver.

Surviving Mr. Warner are his wife Lynn Howell; son Peter; daughter Betsy Ann Warner Bulcher; three grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren.
