Rob Reiner

UCLA 1964-1966

For Him, Doing The Right Thing Is All In The Family.

Rob Reiner, son of legendary comedian Carl Reiner, is himself a show business legend. He became a pop culture icon playing "Meathead" on the groundbreaking sitcom All in the Family from 1971-1976. And as a director in the 1980s, Reiner hit home runs with box-office winners The Princess Bride, When Harry Met Sally and A Few Good Men. But Reiner may be even more of a superstar to the nation's families. In 1998, he chaired the campaign to pass the California Children and Families Act, which created First 5 California, a program of early childhood development services funded by a tax on tobacco. He also is co-founder of the American Foundation for Equal Rights, which spearheaded the fight against the passing of California's Prop 8, which banned same-sex marriage in the Golden State. For his efforts on behalf of children, Reiner was awarded the UCLA Medal in 2000 at the UCLA School of Public Health Commencement ceremonies.
