CONGRESSIONAL DISTINGUISHED SERVICE AWARD Robert Drinan received a Congressional Distinguished Service Award. A five-term representative who served from 1971 to 1981 as a Democrat from Massachusetts, Drinan accepted the honor during a ceremony at the U.S. Capitol on May 10, along with fellow recipients Vice President Dick Cheney, outgoing CIA Director Porter Goss, and former Louisiana Democratic Rep. Lindy Boggs. Established in 2002, the award is given to “former members of the House who have performed their duties on behalf of their constituents and the American people with such extraordinary distinction and selfless dedication as to merit special recognition.” While in Congress, Drinan was a member of several committees and chairman of the House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Criminal Justice. His travels included official congressional delegations to Vietnam, Thailand, Hong Kong, China, and Japan. He has also served on private delegations to the Netherlands, South Africa, Sudan, Israel, and the Soviet Union and privately sponsored human rights missions to Chile, the Philippines, El Salvador, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Argentina, and Vietnam. Drinan has been a professor at Georgetown University Law Center since 1981. He teaches classes on international human rights, constitutional law, civil liberties, legislation, advanced legal ethics, and professional responsibility. � Nathan Carlile
