Forty years after the 1967 revision of the Delaware General Corporation Law, the three principal scriveners, Charles S. Crompton, Jr., Charles F. Richards, Jr., and the Honorable Walter K. Stapleton, of the Delaware Corporation Law Revision Committee sat down to discuss their work with the Committee. Moderated by J. Travis Laster and Frederick H. Alexander, with supplemental commentary from Vice Chancellor Leo E. Strine, Jr. and Professor Lawrence A. Hamermesh, the members of the revision subcommittee recounted their experiences throughout the process. An entertaining and enlightening account of the debates, compromises, and amendments ensued.
