Stephan Made Head Of Legal Aid Unit at Its Annual Gathering
Goldstein, Tisdale, Hofmayer and Barton Also Made Officers
Edmund A. Stephan 2L was elected president of the Harvard Legal Aid Bureau at its annual Spring meeting this week. Other second year lawmen to take office with him on April 1 are:
Milton I. Goldstein 2L, vice president; Wright Tisdale 2L, treasurer; John S. Barton 2L, secretary; and Jerome C. Hofmayer 2L, class representative on the Board of Directors.
The bureau was closed in 1936 and 1937 because its free legal advice to poor people was thought to be in itself an illegal function, but since its reopening last Fall, the number of cases handled compares well with peak years before the break.
