Former Deputy National Security Advisor William G. Hyland died at the age of 79 from an aortic aneurysm March 25 at Inova Fairfax Hospital. An expert on U.S.-Soviet affairs, Hyland served both the Nixon and Ford administrations at the National Security Council. He was also a member of the State Department during Nixon’s presidency and an aide to President Ford four years later.

“Clearly, he was one of three or four people who shaped our policy toward the Soviet Union and arms control,” Winston Lord, former president of the Council on Foreign Relations, said of Hyland in the March 31 issue of the Washington Post.

He is survived by his wife of 53 years, two sons and four grandchildren.
