Moley, Raymond

Moley, Raymond (Charles)

(1886–1975) lawyer, political scientist; born in Berea, Ohio. A law professor at Columbia University (1928–54), he was Governor Franklin D. Roosevelt's representative on the New York Justice Commission (1931–33). An early member of Roosevelt's "brain trust" in 1933, he commuted from New York City to Washington while helping draft New Deal legislation. A contributing editor to Newsweek (1937–68), he became disillusioned with Roosevelt, criticizing him in After Seven Years (1939).
