Harvard '68, Stanford Law '71
Marshall Goldberg is the kind of Kiski boy who proves that all Renaissance men didn't die out in the sixteenth century. He played halfback for Harvard on the Ivy League championship team of 1966, and logged one of the longest runs from scrimmage in Crimson history (82 yards). He delivered the valedictory address at his graduation from Stanford Law School. He served as Counsel for the United States Senate Committee on the Constitution, and Legislative Liaison for Civil Rights at the U.S. Department of Justice.
And then, in May of 1979, he decided he'd had enough of all that. So he pulled up stakes and split for the Coast to do what he'd really always wanted to do — write.
Since then, you've probably seen Marshall's work in your living room more times than you can count. His seemingly endless credits include shows like The Jeffersons, Diff'rent Strokes, Scarecrow and Mrs. King, Silver Spoons, The Gary Shandling Show, Life Goes On, and L.A. Law. He's perhaps most famous (among his Ivy League buddies at least) for his work as head writer for The Paper Chase, a dramatic series about life at Harvard Law School.
