He was involved in that administration's Great Society triumphs and Vietnam tragedy." "In the late 1960s Van Dyk moved to Columbia University as vice president to help quell campus disorders which threatened the university. Over a period of 35 years he was a senior advisor to presidential candidates Humphrey, McGovern, Carter, Ted Kennedy, Mondale, Hart and Tsongas; contributed regular essays to the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, Fortune, and other national publications; and led two national think tanks. In 2001 the Bellingham, Washington, native returned to the Northwest to write a regular editorial-page column for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer."--Jacket." ;
