 LEXINGTON, Mass., Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) announced today that former Senator Warren B. Rudman was elected to its board of directors.
 "Warren Rudman has distinguished himself throughout his career as a man of action, of intellect and of great personal integrity," said Dennis J. Picard, chairman and chief executive officer of Raytheon Company. "His experience, guidance and counsel will be of great assistance to Raytheon as we continue to diversify and expand our businesses, at home and in world markets."
 A native and lifelong resident of New Hampshire, Senator Rudman received a bachelor of science degree from Syracuse University in 1952 and a law degree from Boston College Law School in 1960.
 During the Korean War, he served as a combat platoon leader with the U.S. Army and was discharged with the rank of captain. He began his practice of law in Nashua, N.H., and in 1970, he was appointed attorney general of New Hampshire, serving a six-year term. In 1975, he was elected president of the National Association of Attorneys General.
 He returned to the practice of law in 1976 with the firm of Sheehan, Phinney, Bass and Green, and, in 1980, was elected to the United States Senate. He was overwhelmingly re-elected in 1986.
 During his 12 years in the Senate, he served on the Senate Appropriations Committee, the Intelligence Committee, the Government Affairs Committee and on the Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations. As a member of the Appropriations Committee, he was active on the Subcommittees on Defense and Commerce, Justice, State and the Judiciary where he served as ranking Republican.
 He was a member of the Ethics Committee from 1985 until leaving the Senate and served as its vice chairman and later as chairman. In December 1986, he was appointed to serve as vice chairman of the Senate Select Committee investigating arms transfers to Iran.
 Senator Rudman is perhaps best known as one of the co-authors of the Gramm-Rudman-Hollings Deficit Reduction Law of 1985 -- described by one writer as "the most significant piece of legislation of the 1980's."
 In September 1992, he joined with former Senator Paul Tsongas and former Secretary of Commerce "Pete" Peterson to form the Concord Coalition. The Coalition is a grass-roots, non-profit organization whose objective is to alert the American people to the gravity of our nation's fiscal crisis.
 Senator Rudman is a partner in the international law firm of Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton and Garrison. In addition, he is deputy chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, a director of the Chubb Corporation, a trustee of several of the Dreyfus Corporation Funds, a trustee of Boston College, and a member of the Senior Advisory Committee of the Institute of Politics of the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard.
 Raytheon is a $9 billion diversified technology company with sales in four segments: Electronics, Aircraft Products, Energy and Environmental, and Major Appliances.
