Lawyer tenure in law departments: seventy (70) years in one law department!!

Blogs have the privilege of recording even the most idiosyncratic items. From the Columbia Law School Report (Summer 2005 at 33):

“Edith I. Spivack ’32 has retired after 70 years with the New York City Law Department, where she was hired in 1934 as assistant corporation counsel under [Mayor] LaGuardia. Her remarkable legal career spans the terms of 23 corporation counsels [NYC’s general counsel] and 10 mayors.”

Some of us hope just to live that long.
