HARVARD LAW PROF. MAILED
SUSPICIOUS WHITE POWDER
Alan Dershowitz, a law pro-
fessor at Harvard University
received a letter with a myste-
rious white powder in the mail
last week, the Harvard Crimson
reported.
Dershowitz, reportedly the
only professor tqi have bullet-
proof windows in his office,
is said to receive hate mail on
a regular basis. Dershowitz
received a death threat two
years ago that prompted FBI
agents to trail him for a week to
ensure his safety.
Authorities were alerted to the
white powder, which tested nega-
tive for anthrax. Officials are not
yet certain what the powder was
made of, but law school staffers
were told the material did not
appear to be hazardous, accord-
ingnto the Crimson.
