As a student, Lee Loevinger (1913–2004) was part of the group that led anti-drill and anti-war activism. He entered the University of Minnesota in 1929 and chaired the student Board of Publication that oversaw the Minnesota Daily at a time when the student newspaper was critical of the University administration and strongly supportive of student activism. He graduated from the University of Minnesota in 1933, and from the Law School in 1936.
Loevinger served on the Minnesota Supreme Court. He was a United States Attorney General in the Antitrust Division under Robert Kennedy beginning in 1963. He also served on the Federal Communications Commission from 1963 to 1968.
