Despite being a college drop-out, Epstein was hired in 1973 by Donald Barr, an ESPIONAGE AGENT and headmaster at Manhattan’s private Dalton School (1964–74), as a calculus and physics teacher. There Epstein taught from 1974 to 1976.
During World War II, Donald Barr worked for the OSS (forerunner of the CIA). He is also the father of the current United States Attorney General William Barr, who is currently overseeing Epstein’s prosecution. The hire was unusual for a number of reasons: Epstein had not earned a college degree, the other odd circumstance was that he was only 20 years of age.
