As his oral history recounts, Irv Nathan has served many roles: as Attorney General for the District of Columbia (where he sued a member of the City Council for corruption); as General Counsel to the House of Representatives (where he successfully subpoenaed the George Bush White House); as Deputy Attorney General (where he presided over the ABSCAM investigation); and as a long-time litigator at Arnold & Porter.

A summary of his oral history is aptly titled, “Too Many Careers to Count.” The summary was prepared by Sheldon Krantz, a Georgetown Law professor and Executive Director of the DC Affordable Law Firm, who conducted Nathan’s oral history interviews.
