Professor Whitebread dies

Charles H. Whitebread, the former University of Virginia law professor who maintained his ties to the state through bar review courses and lectures long after he moved to the University of Southern California law school, has died. He was 65.

Mr. Whitebread had a national reputation as an expert in criminal law, the U.S. Supreme Court and juvenile law. That reputation was enhanced by his lectures for bar review courses and his summaries of Supreme Court decisions that he presented to judicial conferences in Virginia and elsewhere.

He taught at the U.Va. law school from 1968 to 1981 and twice received the distinguished professor award. The law school will hold a remembrance of Mr. Whitebread Saturday, Dec. 6 at 4 p.m. in Caplin Pavilion.

Mr. Whitebread died Sept. 16 from lung cancer. The Los Angeles Times has an obituary.
