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.
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.
Fred Newman was 'let go' towards the end of 1990, for unexplained reasons.
