Stephanie Neuman, the longest standing resident of the Saltzman Institute, died on April 15 after a long illness. As a senior research scholar for almost 50 years, she established and ran the institute’s Comparative Defense Studies Program, focusing on non-western security problems. Stephanie was legendary for her numerous foundation grants and research contracts, publications of her own and with collaborators, compilation of data files, SIPA course on “Third World Security Issues,” and employment of scores of student research assistants over the years. She was most noted for her combination of sometimes stinging wit in seminar discussions with warm and welcoming gestures toward students and colleagues. She was a graduate of Connecticut College for Women and earned her Ph.D. at New York University. An Institute commemoration is planned following the Covid-19 pandemic.
