In Memoriam: Daniel Rosenbloom ’54, Law School Foundation Honorary Trustee
Daniel Rosenbloom ’54, a banking executive and former Law School Foundation trustee at the University of Virginia School of Law, died Thursday. He was 88.
He was a member of the foundation’s Board of Trustees for 12 years. Rosenbloom served on the foundation’s Investment Committee from 1994-2002 and as its chairman from 1999-2002. He played a significant role on the Board’s Budget and Finance Committee for two years starting in 2003, before he became an honorary trustee.
He also established the Law School’s Rosenbloom Award, given annually to honor students with strong academic records who have significantly enhanced the academic experience of other law students by volunteering support and assistance.
“Dan was in the vanguard of alumni leaders who loved the Law School and supported its ambitions when few outside the academy had reason to see the changing landscape in legal education,” said Law School Foundation President and CEO Luis Alvarez Jr. ’88. “Dan was loyal, gracious and altruistic. He belonged to a generation of the Law School’s finest friends.”
Rosenbloom had served as general counsel, portfolio manager, chief administrative officer, investment banking/corporate finance director and a member of the Management Committee at First Manhattan Co., a New York-based investment management firm he joined in 1968. He also served as a member of the Specialty Firms and New York Area Firms Advisory committees of the New York Stock Exchange, and as a member of the Advisory Group of HINC Asset Management AB of Sweden.
Rosenbloom earned his B.A. from Virginia in 1951, his LL.B. from the Law School in 1954 and his LL.M. from the New York University School of Law in 1960.
Founded in 1819, the University of Virginia School of Law is the second-oldest continuously operating law school in the nation. Consistently ranked among the top law schools, Virginia is a world-renowned training ground for distinguished lawyers and public servants, instilling in them a commitment to leadership, integrity and community service.
