It is not the norm for one individual to be considered the architect of an entire area of law, but such is the undisputed legacy of Judge Harold H. Greene – the “father” of modern telecommunications law.  Judge Greene’s oral history reveals his actions and attitudes in presiding over the famous breakup of AT&T.  But even beyond that momentous episode, Judge Greene had a lifetime of rich experiences:  escaping from Nazi-held Poland during World War II (which included walking across the Pyrenees); serving in the Justice Department during the 1960s, where he helped author both the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act; becoming the first Chief Judge of D.C. Superior Court; and then, eventually, serving as a federal judge – where, in addition to the AT&T case, he presided over one of the Iran/Contra trials and declared the Sentencing Guidelines to be unconstitutional.  His oral history is summarized by Stephen J. Pollak, the Chair of the Historical Society.
