The story goes like this:
The founders wanted Dr Einsteins name, so several professors and big shots ($) wen to see albert, who was at Princeton
Founders: Dr Einstein, we would like to name our new medical school after you
AE: well, I'm not sure...I'm not a doctor
Founders: well, we could name it after pasteur
AE: what does Pasteur have to do with a jewish school (AECOM is legal subsidiary of Yeshiva University)
Founders: well, in taht case, how about W Harvey
AE: but he is british
Founders: well the, we will go with Dr Schmorekin
AE (looking puzzled), you know, I don't think I have ever heard of this doctor Schmorekin...are you sure people will know what your school is about ?
founders (triumphantly) : you know doctor einstien, with your name, no one will ever ask that...
AE, laughing, ok then , you have my blessing
during the mc carthy era, AECOM hired many leftists, and they also hired many woman, eg, as the story goes, Ora Rosen graduated 1st in her class at columbia medical school, and no one would hire her except AECOM
