Ian Roderick Macneil, 1929-2010

Contracts Professors around the world are mourning the loss of Ian Macneil, known to the world as 46th Chief of the Macneil clan and the 26th Macneil of Barra, and known to contracts professors as the father of relational contracts theory.  Obituaries can be found in the Times of London here and in the Telegraph here.   

Wikipedia has a lengthy entry here.

Reading of Professor Macneil and hearing the remembrances of those who knew him, one gains an appreciation of what it means to stand on the shoulders of giants.
