Comments: Nicholas Katzenbach served as United States Attorney General for Lyndon B. Johnson. While serving as Deputy U.S. Attorney General , he notoriously confronted Alabama Governor George Wallace at the University of Alabama, demanding the school be integrated. Shortly after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, Katzenbach advised Johnson that an independent investigation into the assassination was needed, leading to the creation of the Warren Commission.
