Death claimed two law students during the past four weeks.

Law students Mrs. Karen Taggart and Mr. Robin Davis died within less than a month of each other.

Mrs. Taggart was killed in an automobile accident on the evening of Jan. 21, 1976. She was a graduate of Cal State Dominguez Hills and a third year law student at La Verne College. Mr. Tim Taggart, her husband is currently a law student here.

Law student, Robin Davis; his father, Dr. Philip Davis, 1939 La Verne graduate; his mother, Dr. Harriett Davis; and his girlfriend, Miss Patricia Thompson, a cum laude graduate of USC, were killed on Dec. 28, 1975. They died in a plane crash near Pagosa Springs, Colo.

The crash was attributed to mechanical failure.

Robin Davis was graduated from USC and was at the top of his class here at La Verne.

A memorial has been set for Robin Davis. Contributions made in his name or the Davis family will be used to build and furnish a student lounge in the law center, which will be built later this year.

Contributions may still be made through the law center.

Dr. Davis, Mr. Davis’s father, was the brother of Dr. Rodney Davis, head of LVC Capa, and Mrs. Barbara Enberg of La Verne, and the son of the late Dr. C. Ernest Davis, former president of La Verne College and Mrs. Grace Davis of La Verne.
