Nicholas Richard Doman, an attorney who spent his entire life fighting for the return of property seized under Nazi and Communist governments in Europe, died on Jan. 25. Cause of death was not released. He was 90.
Doman graduated from the London School of Economics in 1932. He earned a master’s degree from the University of Colorado and a law degree from the University of Budapest. During World War II, he served as a first lieutenant in the Army before joining the staff of Robert Jackson, chief U.S. prosecutor, in the Nuremberg war crimes trials.
For the next 50 years, Doman traveled the world, giving lectures on international law, writing wills and reclaiming property that was lost or stolen by the Nazis and Communists. A chair in international law at the University of Colorado is named in his honor, as is a student organization dedicated to fostering interest and increasing the understanding of international and comparative law.
