Richard H. Ullman, known both as a leading scholar and as one of Princeton’s most devoted teachers during his 36 years on the faculty, died March 11. He was 80. “He is a great teacher because he cares not only about his own thoughts but also about those of his colleagues and students,” colleagues wrote in 2001, the year he retired. “This, in part, is why we take him so seriously: because he takes others seriously ....” A professor of international affairs at the Woodrow Wilson School, Ullman published articles and books on such topics as Soviet-Western relations, nuclear policy, the Middle East, and U.S. security strategy.
A memorial for Richard Ullman will be held in Richardson Auditorium at Alexander Hall on June 8 at 2 p.m. There will be a reception afterward at Prospect House.
