Francis Buchanan Tiffany, a St. Paul lawyer and a founder of the St. Paul College of Law, wrote several treatises in the 1890s and early 1900s.
Tiffany's "Death by Wrongful Act: A Treatise on the Law Peculiar to Actions for Injuries Resulting in Death" was published by West Publishing Company of St. Paul in 1893, and a second edition in 1913.
It has been cited by courts over the years. It was cited several times by Justice Brennan for the majority in Sea-Land Services, Inc. v. Gaudet, 414 U. S. 573 (1974), a 5-4 decision.
Tiffany died on October 25, 1936, at age eighty-one. A memorial to him by the Ramsey County Bar Association can be found in "Ramsey County Bar Memorials -- 1937" 3-5 (MLHP, 2016).
