Law and Order NYU

March 29, 2015

From the ancient history of NYU, the story of distinguished anthropologist John Buettner-Janusch:

He served as chairman of the New York University anthropology department before 1980, when he was sent to prison for turning his laboratory into a drug manufacturing operation. After his release, he attempted to poison the judge who presided over his first trial and was sent to prison a second time.

Wow, hard to beat that one.
