    About Ramsey Clark:

    William Ramsey Clark was appointed Assistant Attorney General of the Lands Division by President Kennedy in 1961, when Clark was only 33 years old. After his tenure as AAG, Clark served as Deputy Attorney General from 1965 until 1967, when President Johnson appointed him the 66th U.S. Attorney General. Clark served as the Attorney General until the end of the Johnson Administration in January 1969, and played an important role in the administration’s civil rights agenda, including supervising the drafting of the 1968 Civil Rights Act.

    Following his term as Attorney General, Clark worked as a law professor and was active in the anti-Vietnam War movement. He undertook two unsuccessful Senate campaigns in New York in 1974 and 1976. Clark became an antiwar and civil rights activist, founding the International Action Center, and speaking out against the United States’ 1991 and 2003 military invasions of Iraq. He has served as legal counsel to many controversial figures, including Slobodan Milosevic and Saddam Hussein. In 2008 he received the United Nations Human Rights Prize.

    Clark was born in Dallas. At the age of 17 he joined the Marine Corps, and served in Europe in the final months of World War II. He received a bachelor’s degree from the University of Texas and a law degree from the University of Chicago. After completing his education, Clark joined his father’s Texas law firm Clark, Reed and Clark, where he remained until he was appointed AAG. Clark’s father was former U.S. Attorney General and Supreme Court Justice Tom C. Clark.
