Ethan Nadelmann (SHS 1975)

Political activist.
Ethan’s  Senior quotation in the school yearbook gives little hint about his very serious academic side.  “Life is just one big joke. It was never meant to be taken seriously.”  He taught at Harvard and Princeton and then left the academic world, becoming the Founder and Executive Director of the Drug Policy Alliance.  Nadelmann is regarded as the most articulate spokesman  for drug policy reform in the U.S.
