Biographical history

Gil Winham was a political science professor and leading scholar on the political and legal dimensions of international trade negotiations. Born in New York City on 11 May 1938 to Alfred R. Winham and Margery Rankin Post, he served in the United States Navy for three years prior to earning a diploma in international law from the University of Manchester. After completing a doctorate at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Winham taught at McMaster University. He joined Dalhousie University in 1975, where he remained until his retirement in 2003. He served as the Director of the Centre for Foreign Policy Study from 1975-1982 and was appointed Eric Dennis Memorial Professorship of Government and Political Science in 1992. His scholarly work and public service led to invitations as a Visiting Researcher to Harvard, Johns Hopkins, the University of Toronto, and El Colegio de Mexico, and to his election as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada. He was also a regular instructor and consultant on trade policy simulation courses at the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) and the World Trade Organization (WTO) in Geneva, and a member of dispute settlement panels of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Gil Winham died in Berwick, Nova Scotia, on 1 January 2019.
