Angus King

Angus S. King Jr. H’07 has served as Distinguished Lecturer at Bowdoin since 2004. A two-term governor of Maine, King earned his undergraduate degree at Dartmouth College and his law degree at the University of Virginia Law School.

He began his career as a staff attorney for Pine Tree Legal Assistance in Skowhegan. In 1972 he became chief counsel to the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Alcoholism and Narcotics in the office of then-Senator William D. Hathaway. In 1975 he returned to Maine to practice law with the firm of Smith, Loyd and King in Brunswick. In the same year he began his almost 20-year stint as host of the television show “Maine Watch” on the Maine Public Broadcasting Network.

In 1983 he became vice president and general counsel of Swift River-Hafslund Company, an alternative energy development company based in Portland and Boston. In 1989 he founded and served for five years as president of Northeast Energy Management, Inc., a Brunswick-based company specializing in the development of large-scale energy conservation projects at commercial and industrial facilities in central and southern Maine.

Governor King received an honorary doctor of laws degree at Bowdoin in 2007. He has also served as a visiting fellow at the Institute of Politics at the Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University.
