Myer Feldman, Influential Adviser to President Kennedy 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6

"He was committed to Penn," said Mr. Feldman's son. "He wouldn't have been able to go to law school or college without (financial aid), and I think he always appreciated that opportunity."

In return, Mr. Feldman made a gift to establish the Rebecca Feldman Scholarship in 2004. He received Penn Law's Alumni Award of Merit the following year.

Mr. Feldman started his career in Washington as an assistant to the chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Subsequently he served as counsel to the Senate committee investigating Gen. Douglas MacArthur's firing and as counsel to a committee studying a stock market scandal. His office was next to Kennedy's and they talked about the implications of the scandal. In 1957, after the investigation had ended, Kennedy asked Mr. Feldman to join his presidential campaign.
