Biographical history

Stephen Michael Bloom was born June 10, 1948 in San Francisco, California, to Dr. Allan Bloom and Natalie Claire Levee. He grew up in the San Fernando Valley, where his father was a general practice physician. Bloom graduated high school in 1966, attended Dartmouth College for two years, and in 1970 matriculated at Stanford University with a degree in English. He came of age during the Vietnam War, which shaped his social conscience. During his time at Stanford, Bloom lived with fellow students from the Students for a Democratic Society [SDS] while serving in the Navy ROTC. After two years in the Navy, Bloom began working with the Equal Educational Opportunities Commission in the California Department of Education. Preferring the work he observed lawyers doing, Bloom headed to Willamette Law School in Oregon in 1974.
