    Multiple gifts from Stanley K. Sheinbaum, 2004-2012.


    From the Amazon.com summary of "Citizen Stan" dvd:
    This film profiles a man who rose from humble beginnings to influence politics on a world stage. Stanley Sheinbaum has shaped foreign policy with Prime Ministers, Presidents and Kings. His loyalty to friends and freedom sometimes meant taking great risks. His dedication to peace in the Middle East and opening a dialogue with both sides has put him at odds with people right in his own backyard. His life story holds lessons of character and history, and illustrates the conviction it takes to change our world. Directed by Patty Sharaf. With journalist Robert Scheer. Narrated by Richard Dreyfuss. Interviews with Daniel Ellsberg, Margaret and Nicholas Papandreou, wife and son of the late Greek Prime Minister, former Los Angeles Police Chief Daryl Gates, PLO Negotiator Nabil Shaath, Congresswoman Maxine Waters, Warren Beatty, Jesse Jackson. Synopsis: Growing up in New York's rag trade, the teen-aged Sheinbaum joined the US army effort in WW2, photo-screening maps onto silk for aviators to use. A kid who had done poorly in high school, he used the GI bill to work for a doctorate in economics at Stanford. In 1954, Sheinbaum landed a teaching job at Michigan State University. He also became co-director of the Vietnam Project at MSU. Under the auspices of the University, the project was hiring men to go to South Vietnam and set up a police force. Stanley Sheinbaum was the man doing the hiring. On a disillusioning trip to Saigon to check on his work, Sheinbaum realized men he had hired were now part of the CIA. Later he came to learn they were using torture to interrogate Vietcong prisoners. Sheinbaum left the MSU project to join the first independent think-tank, the Robert Maynard Hutchins Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions in Santa Barbara. One day journalist Robert Scheer confronted Sheinbaum about his role in the Vietnam Project. Much to his surprise, Sheinbaum was a cooperative witness. He and Scheer joined rank, traveling to Vietnam in 1966 to investigate the war. The two men rode a puddle jumper through Cambodia, looking for the path of the Ho Chi Minh trail. Fully at odds with Johnson's the best and the brightest, they were trying to head off the bombing of neutral Cambodia. In Saigon, Sheinbaum locked horns with his younger brother Gil, who had become the advisor to the American ambassador, Ellsworth Bunker. Meanwhile, Stanley Sheinbaum ran for congress in Santa Barbara on an anti-war platform in 1966 and again in 1968. During the Pentagon Papers trial, Sheinbaum organized the defense of Daniel Ellsberg and landed on Nixon's enemies list. Sheinbaum's commitment to the cause of peace has taken him to Greece, Palestine, and the streets of Los Angeles. Don't miss this incredible life story.
