Colonel Richard Joseph Stillman, Ph.D., USA (ret.) began his military career just prior to the beginning of World War Two.  According to the University of New Orleans, “In 1939, his studies at Harvard were interrupted by a year of active duty in the Army during which he first met General Patton at war games in Louisiana. It was in England in 1944 that he again met General Patton as Chief of the Third Army's Test and Inspection Station and became Secretary of General Staff serving as an aide to General Patton for 19 months that included the D-Day invasion.

Dr. Stillman admired General Patton's commitment to physical fitness as well as his can-do attitude, and considered the influence of General Patton instrumental to his career success. Before retiring after 23 years in the military, Dr. Stillman earned the rank of Colonel, Command of the Third Army 20th Infantry Regiment and military honors including The Legion of Merit, The Bronze Star and The Luxembourg Order of the Crown.

 

In 1967, Dr. Stillman was hired by The University of New Orleans Department of Management. In appreciation of his exemplary service as a professor, leader and friend of UNO, he became the first recipient of the College of Business Stillman Lifetime Achievement Award, which is named for him.”

According to an excerpt from Preface to Public Administration: A Search for Themes and Direction, “The U.S. Constitution...says nothing about government personnel, but the new [Civil Service Act of 1883] added a profoundly important element and outlook that, as as Frederick C. Mosher points out, sought to establish the merit criteria in place of patronage politics as the basis for selecting and promoting government employees. Merit, along with depoliticization and political neutrality, became via the Civil Service Act of 1883 the dominant theory governing personnel selection. Today these merit criteria permeate our government, so that now professional, scientific, and technical experts control many functions within public agencies, claiming more specialized expertise and greater knowledge than that of elected politicians and the lay public.”
