Charles Warren (1869 - 1954)
Charles Warren (A.B. 1889; A.M. 1892) was a distinguished lawyer and legal historian. After his graduation from Harvard College, he attended the Law School for two years, and upon receiving the A.M. degree began to practice law in Boston. He was active in state politics for the next twenty years, until, in 1914, he was appointed Assistant Attorney General of the United States, a post he held for four years. For the remainder of his career, he practiced law, mainly in Washington.
Warren was also the author of many books of legal history, written throughout his life. In 1922 he won the Pulitzer Prize for his three-volume The Supreme Court in United States History. Among his many other interests, he was a devoted and active Harvard alumnus.
Charles Warren died in 1954.
