Zohn Louis B.
Years: 1914 - 2006
He was born in Lviv, in what was then Austria-Hungary, later Poland and now Ukraine. He earned his first law degree at John Casmir University in Lviv in 1939, leaving for the United States to take up a Harvard University research fellowship two weeks before Nazi Germany invaded Poland. He was a longtime scholar of international law and advocate of international institutions. In 1958, Professor Sohn was a co-author, with Grenville Clark, of “World Peace through World Law” (Harvard University Press), which examined proposals to transform the United Nations into a world government. The book called for complete disarmament and the use of world judicial tribunals to solve international disputes. The plan also proposed a permanent world police force to enforce a prohibition on the use of force by states.
