Hyman Apfelbaum was the Attorney General of Jefferson during the governorship of Bill Williamson. During Williamson's meeting with Nobuo Fujita, he reflected that Apfelbaum had flown 31 missions over Europe in 1944 in a B-17 Flying Fortress. After the war, he toured Germany, getting by on his Yiddish.[1]

On November 4, 1980, Apfelbaum nursed a scotch while watching President Jimmy Carter's concession speech on television with Governor Williamson and Lt. Gov. Al Rafferty at the Governor's Mansion. Apfelbaum felt Carter had made the concession too early, and began to curse loudly in Yiddish.[2]

A few days after the election, Apfelbaum initially expressed skepticism toward the claim that a speartooth had been caught by fishermen.[3]

In February 1981, Apfelbaum was among the reception for Mark Gordon's return to Jefferson.[4]
