3 Profs Work on Cox's Staff
By Kermit Kubitz
Three members of the Law School faculty - James
Vorenberg '48, Philip Heymann '60, and Stephen
Breyer'64 - undertook their own program of clinical
legal education in Washington this summer as mem-
bers of the staff of their colleague, Watergate Special
Prosecutor Archibald Cox.
Beginning shortly after Cox's appointment in May,
Vorenberg and Heymann joined the staff and began
organizing and recruiting other members. Besides
these two and Cox, the only other members of the
Prosecutor's staff at this point were James Neal, Tom
McBride, and Rosanne Kumins, Administrative As-
sistant to the Law School's Criminal Justice Center.
Vorenberg, who served as deputy prosecutor until
the end of July, operated at first as chief of staff to
build up the organization. Over 1000 applications
were received from lawyers all over the country, in-
cluding many from Harvard. Early in the summer, the
criminal law professor spent about one-third of his
time on hiring, organization, and appropriations, and
two-thirds on various aspects of the investigation.
