A set of 10 copperplate engravings from the “1742 Atlas Coelestis” by Johann Gabriel Doppelmayr were donated to the Law Center in 1998 by Jan and Suzanne Baker, 1973 Law Center alumni. Doppelmayr was a prominent 18th century astronomer, mathematician and cartographer. The plates were rededicated in Zamora’s memory and in recognition of his many contributions to the Law Center.

“These engravings are astronomical maps of the world,” Dean Leonard M. Baynes said. “It’s such a fitting tribute that these maps are dedicated to Professor Zamora given his emphasis on globalism, NAFTA and Latin America.”
