MUELLER’S NEW LIFE
He took over as FBI director on September 4, 2001, a week before terrorist attacks on American soil changed the nation. Robert Mueller served a dozen more years before stepping down on Sept. 4, the longest-serving director since J. Edgar Hoover.
A Vietnam veteran, Purple Heart recipient and former Justice Department litigator, Mr. Mueller is returning to the practice of law. He also will become Georgetown University’s first “distinguished executive-in-residence,” serving as an unpaid faculty and student adviser unaffiliated with any specific academic department.
“There are four areas that I’m interested in — national security, cybersecurity, organizations in transition and leadership,” Mr. Muller says, adding that he looks forward to being associated with a university with “Jesuit values, dignity and integrity.”
