Your Columbians
Charles Evans Hughes

Charles Evans Hughes (1862-1948)
Law 1884

Besides being a graduate of the Law School as well as a prize lecturer at the school, Charles Evans Hughes also served as the governor and secretary of state of New York and both an associate justice and the chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. If that were not enough, he was the Republican nominee for the presidency in 1916. An outstanding individual, he was a true public servant and my nominee for a Columbian Ahead of His Time.

Submitted by Rudy Carmenaty, School of Law 1990, who is solely responsible for the content.
