In July, J. Harvie Wilkinson III of Charlottesville became the newest VHS trustee, elected to serve the remaining term of the late Clifton A. "Chip" Woodrum III. A graduate of Yale and the University of Virginia law school, Judge Wilkinson has taught law, served on the UVA board of visitors, worked as editor of the Norfolk

Virginian-Pilot, and served as deputy assistant attorney in the U.S. Department of Justice. He was appointed circuit judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit in 1984 and has served as chief judge from 1996 to 2003.

He has been on the board of the Federal Judicial Center and the James Madison Memorial Fellowship Foundation. He has written five books, beginning with Harry Byrd and the Changing Face of Virginia Politics, published a year after he graduated from Yale.
