Crimson in Congress—Plus One
Representative Thomas E. Petri '62, LL.B. ’65, Republican of Wisconsin, is no longer alone. In both the 110th and 111th congressional sessions, Petri was the only member of his party in the House to have graduated from, or matriculated in a degree program at, Harvard. But when the 112th Congress convenes, he will be joined by Michael R. Pompeo, J.D. ’94, of Wichita, Kansas—a fact this magazine missed when tallying the results of the 2010 elections. We thank Robert M. Glueck ’73, M.D. ’77, of Leawood, Kansas, for bringing Representative-elect Pompeo's victory to our attention.
The updated total for Harvard matriculants in the new session is now 35: in the Senate, three Republicans and nine Democrats; in the House, two Republicans and 21 Democrats.
