E. Blythe Stason, dean of the Law School of the University of Michigan from 1939 to 1960, was a distinguished legal educator who also served on numerous state and national professional organizations and committees.

Born in Sioux City, Iowa in 1891, Stason graduated from the University of Wisconsin (A.B. 1913), from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (B.S. 1916), and from the University of Michigan Law School (J.D. 1922). With practical experience in both engineering and the practice of law, Stason joined the U-M Law School faculty in 1924 where he remained until his retirement on September 5, 1960. Within the University, in addition to his tenure as dean, Stason also served as Provost from 1938 to 1944.

Outside of his University responsibilities, Stason was frequently called upon for service to various governmental agencies and professional groups. He was a member of the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws; the Michigan Constitution Revision Commission; the Michigan Tax Study Commission; the Michigan Anti-Subversive Study Committee; the Attorney General's Committee on Administrative Procedure; the Hoover Commission Task Force on Legal Services and Practices of the Executive Branch; and the Fund for Peaceful Atomic Development (Administrator beginning in 1955).

Following his retirement from the University, Stason accepted a position as administrator of the American Bar Foundation serving from 1960 to 1964. He then accepted a position at the Vanderbilt University Law School where he taught from 1964 to 1970. He died April 10, 1972.
