Judge Glenn L. Archer, Jr. (1929-2011) was the Assistant Attorney General in charge of the Tax Division of the Department of Justice in 1984 when he was nominated by President Ronald Reagan to be a Circuit Judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. He was the court's Chief Judge from 1994 to 1997. We remember Judge Archer in the biographical article by Timothy R. Holbrook, currently Associate Dean of Faculty and Professor of Law, Emory University School of Law, who served as a law clerk to Judge Archer and knows his subject well. All who met Judge Archer appreciated his warm, kind manner, but as Prof. Holbrook reminds us, he also will be known for the landmark opinions he authored, including in the case of Markman v. Westview Instruments, a decision that impacted patent litigation in the United States probably more than any other since the inception of the court.
