From left, Tom Louden Sr., Willard Boyd and Eugene Copeland celebrate at a reunion held Nov. 19 in Fairfield. Louden and Copeland are both graduates of the University of Iowa College of Law, and Boyd is a law professor and retired president of the University of Iowa. Louden was on the board of regents that elected Boyd president of the university, a position he held twice. Boyd was professor and mentor to Copeland. Also attending the luncheon were Dot Louden and Boyd’s wife Susan and daughter Betsy. Boyd continues vibrant and active work, carrying a full law school teaching load, including an interest in the law relating to Native American artifacts. Of his many contributions to the university and the state of Iowa is The Larned A. Waterman Iowa Nonprofit Resource Center, which serves all of Iowa. He was inspired by the fact that the life and fabric of Iowa communities is manifest through thousands of nonprofit organizations, most of which have very limited resources. Fairfield has between 50 and 100 nonprofit organizations. The luncheon gathering was filled with the joy of renewing friendships, life experiences and stories.
