ABA Committee Member Harold S. Barron


Harold S. Barron is the Seventh Circuit member on the ABA committee.  The latest information that I have is that Barron, who was formerly general counsel of Unisys Corporation, had joined McDermott Will & Emery in Chicago, but that firm’s website does not list him.


Barron contributed $1000 to George W. Bush in 1999, $500 to the National Republican Senatorial Committee in 2002, and $250 in 1992 to Republican Senate candidate Richard S. Williamson.  But Barron also gave $500 to the Democratic National Committee in 1992.  I see nothing else in Barron’s record suggestive of partisan ideological attachments.
