In the mid-1960s Sen. J. William Fulbright became my friend--and my mentor. Our shared passion was the conviction that the Vietnam War was a massive and costly mistake that should be brought to an end without delay. With his encouragement I worked to create an organization of business executives (card-carrying capitalists, he jokingly called us) augmented by a military advisory committee headed by the recently retired U.S. Marine Corps Commandant, Gen. David Shoup. The members of our group who testified in public hearings of Fulbright's Senate Foreign Relations Committee included prominent business leaders such as Louis Lundborg, then chief executive of Bank of America.

OPINION
February 12, 1995
J. William Fulbright was as contradictory as the tumultuous times he helped shape, mostly with principled, steely and often abrasive dissent. A product of rural Arkansas politics, he came to be known worldwide as the urbane intellectual conscience of U.S. foreign policy in his three decades in the Senate. Rooted in the power structure, he was often a dour and defiant skeptic of power.
