Yakov Malkiel was born in Kiev, Ukraine in 1914. He fled Russia during the civil war and moved to Germany where he received his Ph.D. in Romance Linguistics. He emigrated to the United States in 1940 and joined the University of California, Berkeley faculty in 1942. There he participated in founding the Department of Linguistics and in 1965 became a member of the department where he taught until his retirement. Malkiel wrote and edited more than a dozen books and wrote hundreds of scholarly articles. He founded the journal Romance Philology in 1946 and received many awards and honors during his career. His wife, Maria Rosa Lida, an Argentine scholar, died in 1962. Malkiel died of a heart attack in 1998 at the age of 83.
