An Evening with Kenneth R. Feinberg '67, '02H

Join Kenneth R. Feinberg '67, '02H, Chancellor Kumble Subbaswamy and UMass Amherst Libraries to honor Ken's gifts to the Libraries and his leadership for the UMass Rising campaign.

Alumnus Kenneth R. Feinberg is one of the most prominent and dedicated attorneys of our time. He is associated with nearly every significant victim compensation case today. Ken is chairman of the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation's Board of Directors and co-chair of our campusís UMass Rising campaign.

Feinberg's work began in the 1970s with the Agent Orange and Love Canal settlements. An international expert in complex mediation, arbitration and alternative dispute resolution, he is best known as the special master for the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund, where he worked pro bono for 32 months, distributing $7 billion to terrorist attack victims. Other cases include Virginia Techís Hokie Spirit Memorial Fund, the BP Gulf Coast Claims Facility (GCCF) and most recently, the One Fund Boston. His professional and personal archives have been donated to the UMass Amherst Libraries for use by students and researchers.

In addition, enjoy the UMass Amherst Sustainability Showcase. Meet students, faculty, and librarians involved in sustainability efforts on campus, including the campusís Common Read for 2013, No Impact Man, the campus' Alternative Textbook Program, and many other green initiatives at the Libraries and on campus.

Price: $50 per adult / $85 per couple
Price includes food, parking and admission to the John F. Kennedy Library and Museum ($12 value). Guests may arrive at 5:30 p.m. for a private tour, including the special exhibit, To the Brink, a look back at the Cuban Missile Crisis from the 50-year mark, featuring JFKís recordings of White House meetings.
