The expression “gentleman and a scholar” may be overused, but not with Pellom McDaniels. The former Chief, who passed on Sunday, was all that…and more. Smart, talented, generous. What a good heart, warm smile and kind soul. He’ll be missed.

Pellom McDaniels III was one of the greatest humans I have had the honor to know, and it was clear from the first moment I met him in 2001 that he was destined for greatness. His enthusiasm, warmth, kindness, and laugh were contagious. He lit up every room he entered.

Gutted by the news of Pellom McDaniels’ passing. We bonded over our shared study of African Americans and WWI. I deeply admired his generosity and endless passion for history. I had the honor of reviewing and endorsing his last book. A terrible loss. Rest in peace friend.
