The Legacy of Reginald F. Lewis
This esteemed fellowship is made possible through the generosity of Reginald F. Lewis, a distinguished Harvard Law School graduate from the class of 1968, and his wife, Loida Nicolas-Lewis. Mr. Lewis, the former CEO of TLC Beatrice Foods International and author of “Why Should White Guys Have All the Fun?,” bestowed the largest grant in the Law School’s history shortly before his passing in 1993. To honor his legacy, Harvard Law School’s International Law Center was renamed in his honor.
