Alan Dershowitz

Saturday, May 25, 1985

Lloyd Moss interviews famed defense lawyer and author Alan Dershowitz (described as "America's most outspoken lawyer of last resort" and self-described as "gadfly to the legal establishment") about his early exposure to great cantors in Boro Park, his career, his young "mouth of Webster and head of clay," and his love of opera and specifically Pavarotti. Mr. Dershowitz is the youngest professor to ever achieve tenure at Harvard. He discusses his musical selections.
