Professor Neil Hamilton & LL.M. Alumni at Harkin Portrait Unveiling

Professor Neil Hamilton was in Washington, D.C. last week when Iowa Senator Tom Harkin was celebrated at a Capitol Hill reception that included the unveiling of Senator Harkin's official portrait.  This portrait will be hung among those of other past chairmen of the Senate Agriculture Committee on the walls of the Committee’s hearing room.

The guest list for the unveiling was a roll call of prominent figures in agriculture including U.S. Agriculture Secretary, former Iowa Gov. Tom Vilsack, current Senate Agriculture Committee chair, Debbie Stabenow, ranking member Pat Roberts, former Iowa Gov. Chet Culver, former Agriculture Secretary Dan Glickman, our friend, Professor Hamilton and many staffers who served on the Committee. Two of our LL.M. alumni served under Senator Harkin on the Agriculture Committee -  Doug O'Brien and Amy Lowenthal.  Both were in attendance at the unveiling. Doug now serves as Deputy Under Secretary for Rural Development at USDA, and Amy serves as Assistant Counsel to the Inspector General at USDA.
