All-Harvard, All the Time (Criminals Edition)

Harvard economist Greg Mankiw notes:
With the news that Betsey Stevenson is joining the CEA, the three-member board will now have two Harvard PhDs and a Harvard professor. Just saying....

This should not be surprising since Harvard has a long list of criminals who have attended the place:
JEFFREY SKILLING-Enron president
RICHARD WHITNEY-former head of the New York Stock Exchange, served time in Sing Sing for embezzlement
And, one shouldn't forget the war criminal, HENRY KISSINGER.

Apologies to the Harvard associated  Tom Woods and Joseph Schumpeter, although I am not sure about Schumpeter. (See Joseph Alois Schumpeter by Wolfgang Stopler p. 13)
