Grant Gilmore as I Remember Him, 92 YALE L.J. 4 (1982)


Grant Gilmore's was a singularly rich life. His writings on commercial law, contracts, and admiralty, and his work on the Uniform Commercial Code, opened new vistas; they inspired his colleagues and students alike. Grant's many works were distinguished by penetrating analysis, by the elegance of his prose, by what the French call clarte. The success of Grant's work is due in large measure to an enviable and supreme self-confidence, which enabled him to strike out boldly in his attack on many a traditional doctrine and in his attempt to blaze new trails. As a result of his work, the law in the fields he chose for study will never be the same.
