Birth: Jan. 20, 1911
Death: Sep. 2, 1992

He defended Willie Francis after the botched first execution. It is quite ironic - his grandfather started the Knights of the White Camellia - an organization similar to the Klan.

--and he became to deeply care for and believed in Francis' innocence. There is a book on the subject by Gilbert King.
