Title: John David Jackson

John David Jackson, professor emeritus at the University of California, Berkeley, whose magisterial textbook Classical Electrodynamics has shaped graduate education for more than a half century, died on 20 May 2016 in Lansing, Michigan. His wide-ranging theoretical work combined fine craftsmanship, intuition born of meticulous scholarship, engagement with experiment, and respect for practical matters. He was a wise counselor and a tireless advocate for human rights and academic freedom.
