Harold C. Havighurst*
Robert Wyness Millar was born on April 10, 1876, in Falkirk,
Scotland. As a boy of ten, he came to the United States where
at an early age he resolved to make the law his profession and
directed his studies to that end. Receiving the degree of Bachelor
of Laws from the Northwestern University School of Law in 1897,
he was admitted to the bar and entered upon the practice of law
in Chicago. During the course of his practice he engaged in some
part-time teaching, first at the John Marshall Law School and
later at Northwestern. In 1915 he accepted a full-time appoint-
ment as Professor of Law at Northwestern University, a position
which he held until his retirement 27 years later. From 1942 until
his death he was Professor Emeritus.
As a teacher and scholar, Professor Millar in his early years
showed an interest in criminal law, translating Garofalo's work
on Criminology (1912) and writing a portion of the History of
Continental Criminal Law for the Continental History Series
(1916). Throughout his life, however, his efforts were devoted
almost entirely to civil procedure. In this field he enjoyed world
renown, both for his trenchant and learned studies in the Anglo-
American law and for his numerous masterly monographs and
essays in comparative procedure. The latter included articles in
foreign publications as well as contributions to American law re-
views. He was the translator and editor of the History of Conti-
nental Civil Procedure by Engelmann and others (1927) and his
own Formative Principles of Civil Procedure was translated into
Spanish and published in Argentina in 1945. He was honored by
membership in the Institute Espanol de Derecho Processal.
In Italian civil procedure, he had a special interest. On several
occasions he visited Italy where he made many good friends among
the leaders of Italian legal thought. He contributed to a number
