This article honors, with some well-deserved ridicule thrown in along the way, Case Western Reserve’s legendary tax professor, Leon Gabinet. It chronicles Leon’s rise from a barefoot farm boy in Poland and Chicago — rooting, hopelessly, for the Chicago Cubs — to his heroic time in the Pacific in World War II, his years at the intellectually intense University of Chicago, the brain deadening time spent playing hockey, his long-time law practice in Portland, and, most important, his several decades (not yet over) as the most popular and erudite teacher at the law school of Case Western Reserve University.
