 DEPUTY ATTORNEY GENERAL AND ASSOCIATE ATTORNEY GENERAL
 SWORN INTO OFFICE
 WASHINGTON, May 11 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Attorney General, William P. Barr, today formally swore into office Deputy Attorney General George J. Terwilliger, III, and Associate Attorney General Wayne A. Budd.
 At the installation ceremony in the Attorney General's office, Barr called Terwilliger and Budd "great professionals and men of high integrity." He added, "The Department of Justice will be well-served, and so will the American people."
 Associate Judge Robert M. Scott of the Superior Court of the District of Columbia administered the oath of office and J. Donald Monan, S.J., president of Boston college, offered the invocation.
 Since coming to the Department of Justice in June of 1990, Terwilliger has served as Principal Associate Deputy Attorney General and Acting Deputy Attorney General. From 1986 to 1991, Terwilliger served as the presidentially appointed U.S. Attorney for the District of Vermont and, while there, was recognized for running an outstanding law-enforcement program. Prior to that, Terwilliger was an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the District of Vermont from 1981-1986, and an Assistant U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia from 1978 to 1981.
 Terwilliger, in his capacity as Deputy Attorney General, oversees all the operations of the Justice Department.
 Budd, a native of Springfield, Mass., was nominated by the president in March of this year to the post of Associate Attorney General. Most recently, Budd served as the U.S. Attorney for the District of Massachusetts where he was the highest ranking federal law enforcement official in the Commonwealth. Prior to that 1989 appointment, Budd was a senior partner at the Boston law firm of Budd, Wiley & Richlin. In 1979, when elected to serve as president of Massachusetts Bar Association, Budd became the first black person in the nation's history to lead a state bar association.
 In the capacity of Associate Attorney General, Budd has direct supervision of several litigating divisions within the department, including civil issues, civil rights, environmental law, tax, antitrust, and the Bureau of Prisons.
