(AURN) -- While many people may not know the name Nicholas Katzenbach, he's being remembered as a supporter of the Civil Rights Movement.  He was a member of the Kennedy adminstration's Justice Department, and was present in 1963 when the segregationist Alabama Governor George Wallace blocked an entrance at the University of Alabama, preventing two African-American students from attending.  Katzenback gave Wallace the proclamation that declared his actions unconstitutional.  Katzenback died in New Jersey at 90 years-old.
