Donald N. Zillman

We note with sadness the death on July 27 of Donald N. Zillman. Don was a longtime close observer of military justice as well as military personnel policies more generally. He wrote extensively about these fields, including articles concerning the decline in the number of veterans in the U.S. Congress. He was incurably optimistic and encouraging of others. For many years he was the Edward Godfrey Professor of Law at the University of Maine School of Law. He graduated from the University of Wisconsin (B.A., J.D.) and the University of Virginia Law School (LL.M). He served as a U.S. Army judge advocate and taught law at Arizona State University, the University of Utah, and the University of Maine. He served as Dean at Maine Law and, for six years, as President of the University of Maine at Presque Isle (UMPI). He was a visiting professor at the United States Military Academy at West Point and the University of Southampton (UK).
