Subjects include his childhood and family life in New York; student and intellectual life at Stanford including his experiences with antisemitism; his interest in Vietnam and ultimate anti-war position; Robert Maynard Hutchins and the Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions; his involvement in Democratic politics, including Eugene McCarthy's presidential campaign in 1968; his involvement with the Daniel Ellsberg case; Jewish politics and organizations; and his work as a University of California Regent.
Sheinbaum, born in New York City in 1920, attended Stanford University on the G.I. bill after his service in World War II. He earned his a.b. in history in 1949 and stayed on to pursue graduate work in economics. He held a Fulbright fellowship in France, 1953-55, and then joined the faculty at Michigan State University. He was a fellow at the Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions in Santa Barbara from 1960 to 1970 and a Democratic candidate for Congress in 1966 and 1968. He later served as a Regent for the University of California system.
