Clark", "Ramsey Clark", 4x9 closed, 18x8 open flat. Program for a Leadership Conference held at New York University in December of 1970. Special Assistant in the Justice Department (1937-1943) and Assistant Attorney General (1943-1945) under FDR, TOM C. CLARK (1899-1977) was appointed Attorney General by Truman in 1945 and Associate Justice of the Supreme Court in 1949. When his son RAMSEY CLARK (1927-2021) was appointed Attorney General by President Lyndon B. Johnson in 1967, Tom C. Clark resigned as Associate Justice of the Supreme Court to avoid any possible conflict of interest. Ramsey, who served as Attorney General until the end of Johnson's term in 1969, was an opponent of the Vietnam War and has always been a proponent of civil rights. He founded the International Action Center, a nationwide anti-war organization, and he has faced criticism for his defense of such clients as Saddam Hussein. Clark, who joined Hussein's defense team in 2004, returned to Iraq in November 2005 to protest the Iraqi Tribunal that was trying Hussein, and he was ejected from the proceedings in November 2006 after he told the judge that the trial was a travesty. Slightly worn at edges on center fold. Lightly toned. Slight surface creases. Otherwise, fine condition.
