Melvin Wulf: Legal Crusader For the ACLU

From a Washington Post obit by Harrison Smith headlined “Melvin Wulf, legal crusader for the ACLU, dies at 95”:

Melvin L. Wulf, a constitutional lawyer who represented anti-Vietnam War activists, opposed government censorship of the Pentagon Papers and crusaded on behalf of civil rights, gender equality and personal privacy while serving as the longtime legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union, died at his home in Manhattan.

As the ACLU’s legal director from 1962 to 1977, Mr. Wulf helped transform the organization’s litigation program, shifting its focus from writing amicus briefs for major cases to representing individual clients whose civil liberties were allegedly violated.
