More on Needleman
Dr. Shapiro informed the community of the success achieved through
400 signatures from around the world on a petition to obtain open
hearings for Dr. Herbert Needleman (a Penn alumnus) at the University
of Pittsburgh (Almanac December 8, 1992). The positive result for Dr.
Needleman is only part of the story, however. He sustained enormous
costs in defending himself against the charges. We can be of further
assistance by contributing to the Needleman Defense Fund set up under
the auspices of the American Association of University Professors in
Pennsylvania. Send your check or money order to Dr. Robert Norman,
University of Pittsburgh, Graduate School of Public and International
Affairs, Pittsburgh, PA 15260. Large or small contributions are
gratefully received. Every penny helps!
