Biography The American Committee for the Guidance of Professional Personnel was formed in December, 1938, as a result of a meeting in Chicago of the Association of American Law Schools. Its purpose was to provide fellowships in the United States for refugee lawyers, many of Jewish origin, who sought retraining in American law schools. A selection committee was created to screen applicants. David Riesman of the University of Buffalo Law School and later Harvard was its secretary. Other members included Edmund M. Morgan, chairman; Arthur A. Ballantine, treasurer; Carl J. Friedrich; and Philip W. Amram.
