In Memory of Arnold Zellner


Dr. Arnold Zellner, ARE adjunct professor, passed away on Tuesday August 10, 2010 . He was one of the great thinkers of our times, a wonderful person, and a major contributor to our department. He will be greatly missed.

Dr. Arnold Zellner was born on January 2, 1927 in Brooklyn, New York to Ukranian
immigrants, Dora Kleiman Zellner and Israel (Sam) Zellner, who, along with a loving
Grandmother, reared Arnold, and his older brother Norman, with a great appreciation for
the American freedoms and opportunities denied to citizens of their native country.

Arnold attended Harvard University on a scholarship, earning a Bachelors degree in
Physics in 1949. Upon completing his tour of duty in the Army, he used his GI Bill
benefits to attend the University of California, Berkley and earned a Ph.D. in Economics
in 1957.

He held appointments in the Department of Economics at the University of
Washington (1955-1960) and the University of Wisconsin (1961-1966) before accepting
an appointment as the H.G.B. Alexander Professor of Economics and Statistics at the
University of Chicago, Graduate School of Business (1966-1996).

Since retiring in 1996 from the University of Chicago, he has been a frequent lecturer throughout the world and a frequent visiting professor in the Department of Agricultural & Resource Economics at his alma mater, the University of California, Berkeley.
