Carr first came to the school in 1953 to attend law school. He served as general counsel, university secretary, vice chancellor for university relations and trusted adviser to multiple chancellors. “The property that Jeff had was the ability to communicate with a group very effectively, with minimum words but with maximum thought and effect,” said Chancellor Emeritus Joe B. Wyatt.
