Whitney R. Harris died at age 97 on April 21, 2010. He was the final living one of the prosecutors who appeared in 1945-46 before the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg, the trial of the principal Nazi war criminals.

After Nuremberg, Whitney Harris became a lawyer in the U.S. occupation government in the former Germany, a law professor, an American Bar Association staff leader, a successful private law practitioner and businessman, and a philanthropist. He was a lifelong advocate of human rights and international law. From Nuremberg through the 1998 Rome Conference until the end of his long life, he was a tireless and important supporter of the International Criminal Court.

This eulogy, delivered at a memorial service in May 2010, describes Whitney Harris’s life, achievements and sterling personal qualities. It is published here containing three photographs of Whitney Harris at Nuremberg sixty and more years after the IMT trial.
