CROSSWORD by Andy Kravis ’13
About the Author: Andy Kravis ’13
Andy Kravis was a professional cruciverbalist (that means crossword puzzle maker) even before he received his J.D. This is the second puzzle he has created specially for the Columbia Law School community. He has published crosswords in the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and Chronicle of Higher Education and is a founder of the Indie 500 annual crossword tournament. He also is an accomplished trivia master and quiz show contestant: The week before starting his first law job, in 2013, he paid off his student debt by winning $2.6 million on NBC’s Million Second Quiz. Two months later, he published his first crossword in the Times. He is now assistant puzzles and games editor at The New Yorker.
As a law student, Kravis was a Harlan Fiske Stone Scholar and winner of the Allan Morrow Sexuality and Gender Law Prize. He worked as a Transgender Rights Project Legal Fellow at Lambda Legal, the LGBTQ+ rights organization, before turning to puzzle-making full time.
