Professor Joseph Warren Bishop, Jr. came to the Yale Law School in 1957, as part of Dean Rostow’s initiative to expand the faculty. Prior to joining the faculty, as General Counsel to the U.S. Army, he defended the Army from charges of communist infiltration during the McCarthy hearings of the early 1950s. He was decorated for exceptional civilian service by the Army in 1953 upon his departure for private practice.
He grew up in Washington.
A self-identified “New Deal Liberal” and “life-long Democrat,” in describing the subject of much of his commentary he stated that he was “interested in skinning pompous frauds, in recent years especially new left frauds.”
