Social Reformer. A native Virginian who came to New York and studied law at Columbia Law School, as lawyer he took part in some of the country's most important litigation regarding corporations and the public trust. Some of the investigations he led, formed the groundwork for our Federal Reserve Law, the Clayton Anti-Trust Law, the Federal Trade Commission Bill and the Securities and Exchange Act. He was a strong believer in stock-market regulations and government ownership of railroads. He was a delegate to six Democratic Conventions from 1904 to 1932.
