The Amherst Political Union (APU) welcomes 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 returns to Amherst for a conversation with Professor of Law, Jurisprudence, and Social Thought Lawrence Douglas. They discuss crime, immigration, and Morgenthau’s life as a Navy officer, a New York gubernatorial candidate, and nine-time elected Manhattan DA.
