A Discussion with 30-Year Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau
with Professor Lawrence Douglas
The Amherst Political Union (APU) is honored to welcome former Manhattan District Attorney Robert M. Morgenthau back to Amherst College. Morgenthau, alum of the Class of 1941, helped to found the APU almost 75 years ago. Now, after a career as one of the most iconic figures in law enforcement history, Morgenthau will return to Amherst for a conversation with Professor of Law, Jurisprudence, and Social Thought Lawrence Douglas on Thursday, April 11 at 8:00 P.M. in Pruyne Lecture Hall. They will discuss crime, immigration, and Morgenthau’s life as a Navy officer, a New York gubernatorial candidate, and nine-time elected Manhattan DA. This event is free and open to the public.
