Carl Hatch Endowed Professorship in Law and Public Administration

This endowment was established in 1980 to honor the late U.S. Senator Carl Hatch. Carl Atwood Hatch was a Democratic Party politician from New Mexico who represented New Mexico in the United States Senate from 1933 until 1949 and was later appointed by President Harry S. Truman to a seat on the United States District Court for the District of New Mexico from 1949 until his death in 1963. 

Much like a Regents Professorship, this fund awards a professorship to a current faculty member for up to a three-year term. The award amount may be used by the recipient as a salary supplement or for support of research and scholarship, or a combination thereof.
