Attorney General John Ashcroft (1967)

“Every experience I had at the university of Chicago lasted a lifetime. Chicago’s extraordinary rigor of scrupulously honest intellectual inquiry has lasted. It never failed to be my best ally in advocacy, argument, and policy. My Chicago law school friends have lasted. They have always gone the extra mile, never wavered, and welcomed me in places around the globe. My wife, Janet Elise Roede Ashcroft, with whom I shared law school at Chicago, has profoundly shared her life with me. And, she has lasted too. No institution of higher learning has a higher rating with us. Chicago lasts a lifetime.
