Lloyd Newman was generally known as Larry Newman at Philip Morris. He worked as an external science administrator for the company, and his brother Frederic S Newman generally known as just Fred Newman was Deputy Legal Counsel (the inhouse lawyer looking after science corruption). Both brothers were intimately involved in many of the industry scams at a top executive level.

The brothers also ran Newman Partners Ltd (NPL) on the side which did scientific PR for the company -- apparently with the full knowledge of other PM executives. Newman Partners Ltd ran a database on Environmental Tobacco Smoke (ETS) adverse health research for Philip Morris, and helped them plan on how to use the Varela Study to counter solid research showing that thousands of people possibly died from the increased pollution from cigarette smoke in the air.

Fred Newman was 'let go' from Philip Morris towards the end of 1990, for unexplained reasons, and he either retired or joined his brother in the company. His name simply disappears from the archives.
