Morry Shanker began teaching at the Western Reserve Law School shortly after the creation of the Western Reserve. In fact, had Moses Cleaveland not elbowed his way to the front of the boat in 1796, Professor Shanker would have been the first surveyor to step onto the banks of the Cuyahoga. If that had happened, the house band at Severance Hall might be known today as the Shanker Orchestra.
