Frederic S Newman (Note no 'k' on Frederic) generally known as just Fred Newman was Deputy Legal Counsel (the inhouse lawyer looking after science corruption) for Philip Morris. He was intimately involved in many of their scams at a top executive level. His brother Lloyd L Newman also worked for Philip Morris running their external scientific research program.
