President Barack Obama, J.D. '91, has announced his intention to appoint physicist Cherry A. Murray, dean of the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, to the seven-member National Commission on the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill and Offshore Drilling.
The commission is co-chaired by a pair of Harvard Law School alumni: former Florida governor and U.S. Senator Bob Graham, LL.B. '62, and William K. Reilly, J.D. '65, who was administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency under President George H.W. Bush; in that capacity, Reilly oversaw the federal response to the Exxon Valdez oil spill in Alaska in 1989.
