After an political career that involved writing speeches for JFK, RFK, and LBJ, and a legal career that is highlighted by the exposure of the "Quiz Show Scandal" of the 1950s, Richard Goodwin, class of 1953, is bringing his first play to Boston. Two Men of Florence pits Galileo Galilei and Pope Urban VIII against each other as science and religion battle for supremacy in the 17th century. The play is presented by the Huntington Theatre Company, and it runs through April 5th.
While at Tufts, Goodwin was President of the Student Council, Editor-in-Chief of the Tufts Weekly, and was awarded first prize in the Wendell Phillips Oratory Contest. He received an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters in May, 1995.
