Parade Magazine, in its August 4 issue, surveyed the "smartest living Americans," asking them who they thought the smartest people in America are. Here are some of the Harvard-related results:
Alan Dershowitz, chutzpah-laden Harvard Law School prof, listed the following four geniuses:
*Ted Koppel of ABC.
*Red Auerbach, president and former coach and general manager of the Boston Celtics.
*Stephen Jay Gould, Harvard professor of zoology and Red Sox fan extraordinaire.
*Robert Nozick, Harvard professor of philosophy.
Dersh, by the way, teaches his "Thinking About Thinking" course with the latter two of his four "smartest people in America." Genius by association?
John Kenneth Galbraith, Warburg professor of economics emeritus, lists his top choices:
*Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Arthur Schlesinger Jr.
*U.S. Rep. Patricia Schroeder (D-Colo.).
*Washington labor lawyer Joseph Rauh Jr.
*U.S. Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.).
