G. Kenneth Reiblich

March 10, 1992

G. Kenneth Reiblich, an authority on constitutional law who was a professor at the University of Maryland Law School before moving to the faculty of the University of Arizona, died Friday of congestive heart failure at a nursing home in Tucson, Arizona.

A memorial service for Dr. Reiblich, who was 86 and lived in

Tucson, was being held today at the Adair Funeral Chapel in Tucson.

He taught at Arizona's law school for 15 years before his retirement in 1978. He had joined the faculty at Maryland in 1930. He was an adviser and contributor to the law reviews at both schools.

He wrote an annual article on the Supreme Court from 1953 to 1983 for the West Publishing Co. and had been a consultant for the company's 25-volume Maryland legal encyclopedia.

From 1944 to 1949, he was on leave from the Maryland faculty to work for the Baltimore Gas and Electric Co., for which he later served as a consultant. He was on the board of the Safe Harbor Water Power Corp., which built a hydroelectric dam on the Susquehanna River in Pennsylvania.

Between 1957 and 1961, he was executive secretary of the Maryland Self Survey Commission, which studied various aspects of state government, including a revision of the criminal laws.

He is survived by his wife, the former Minerva Mitchell; three daughters, Anne B. Leland of Kingsville, Mary L. Foley of Reston, Va., and Carol G. Cook of Towson; four sons, Kenneth T. Reiblich of Perry Point, David M. Reiblich of Indianapolis and George W. and Carroll W. Reiblich, both of Tucson; 12 grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren.
