Professor David Bederman's scholarly contributions spanned many fields. Underlying his work was an immense facility with history--a judicious understanding of historical method along with breadth of knowledge, painstakingly obtained. His contributions in admiralty and international law, for example, proceeded from a keen understanding of developments over time in those fields. It is this feature of his work--David Bederman as legal historian--on which I write.
