News/Obit 9 July 2001  Obituary,
SAMUEL HILEMAN JR., ARTIST AND EDITOR, DIES

Whether he was living in Mexico, painting in California, or editing a book that would later win the Pulitzer Prize, Samuel Hileman Jr. was a Virginian at heart.


Hileman, who grew up in Millboro in Bath County, died Saturday at 75. He is survived by his three children - Charles, Frank and Milena Hileman - and his ex-wife, Bette Hileman.


"He's been a Millboro guy the whole time," said his daughter, Milena Hileman.


A devoted student of the arts, Sam Hileman spent most of his life writing and painting. After serving in the Navy during World War II, Hileman returned home to earn a bachelor of arts degree in English from the University of Virginia.


After a few years, he moved to Mexico, where he met Carlos Fuentes, one of Latin America's most prominent authors.


Hileman helped translate four of Fuentes' early novels. Then he returned to the United States and became an editor at the Department of Ethnomusicology at the University of California-Los Angeles.


Hileman's children were born in Los Angeles. He also began painting in California. Some of his work can be seen at www.galleryhouse2.com, which showcases Palo Alto-area artists.


In 1972, Hileman and his family moved back to Millboro to be closer to his ailing mother, who died within a year. He ended up staying there for the rest of his life, with dreams of turning his home into a haven for artists and writers.


About 12 years ago, Hileman's eldest son Charles married Deborah Bix, daughter of Herbert Bix, a history professor. While the marriage didn't last, the families remained friends.


Bix eventually asked Hileman to look at his book about Japan's Emperor Hirohito. Titled "Hirohito and the Making of Modern Japan," the book traces Hirohito's reign from 1926 to 1989 and includes unpublished letters and diaries of members of his royal court.


"He was more than just an editor," said Bix of Hileman. "He had a love for a precision of words. He could grasp whole chapters and see the structural weakness in it."


Bix, who teaches at Binghamton University in New York, said he would spend weeks at Hileman's home working on the book, arguing over chapters that Hileman thought should be cut.


"More often than not, he'd be right," Bix recalled.


The book was this year's winner of the Pulitzer Prize for general nonfiction. On the dedication page, Bix wrote that he owed a "vast debt" to Hileman for his work on the book.


"I learned from Sam enormously," Bix said, "and I'm a richer person for having known him."
