DEAN, Amos, lawyer, born in Barnard, Vermont, 16 February 1803 ; died 26 January 1868. He was graduated at Union in 1822, studied law, and on his admission to the bar formed a partnership of long continuance with Azor Tabor, and soon attained a high reputation for his legal attainments. In 1833 he projected the Young men's association of Albany, of which he was a lifelong friend and supporter, and in 1834 delivered before it a course of lectures, subsequently published. He prepared numerous treatises on law subjects, which have been recognized as standard works. In 1851, on the organization of the Law School, he was appointed a professor, and he had also filled the chair of medical jurisprudence in the Albany medical school from its organization in 1839. He is the author of "Lectures on Phrenology" (1835); "Manual of Law" (1838); " Philosophy of Human Life " (Boston, 1839);" Medical Jurisprudence" (1854); and "Bryant and Stratton's Commercial Law " (New York, 1861).
