When he stepped down as president of the Harvard Law School Association on Class Day, June 5, ending a two-year term, Robert N. Shapiro '72, J.D. '78, completed a unique form of service to the University. He is the only person known to have been president of both the Harvard Alumni Association (1991-1992) and a graduate or professional school's alumni body. In addition to his law practice at Ropes & Gray in Boston, Shapiro is or has been active in the HAA's Harvard-Cambridge Scholarships Committee, as a trustee of Phillips Exeter Academy and Peabody Essex Museum, a director of Harvard Magazine, and cochair of his College class's thirtieth reunion, which mercifully occurs after the end of his HLSA presidency.
