Please join us for a champagne toast and light bites to commemorate the occasion and celebrate Professor Emeritus Zamora's legacy as Dean.

These ten copperplate engravings from the the 1742 Atlas Coelestis were donated to the Law Center in 1998 by Jan and Suzanne Baker as a result of discussions with then Dean Zamora, who determined that the plates should be hung in the Law Center Library.  Accordingly, the plates are being rededicated in his memory and in recognition of his many contributions to the Law Center.

 The Atlas Coelestis is a famous collection of astronomical charts by Johann Gabriel Doppelmayr a prominent eighteenth century astronomer, mathematician, and cartographer.
