Clarence Darrow To I. Reines Skier New York March 23-1927
Clarence Darrow (April 18, 1857-March 13, 1938) was an American lawyer, a leading member of the American Civil Liberties Union, and a prominent advocate for Georgist economic reform. He defended high-profile clients in many famous trials of the early 20th century, including teenage thrill killers Leopold and Loeb for murdering 14 year old Robert "Bobby" Franks (1924); teacher John T. Scopes in the Scopes "monkey" Trial (1925), in which he opposed statesman and orator William Jennings Bryan; and Ossian Sweet in a racially charged self-defense case (1926). Called a "sophisticated country lawyer, Darrow's wit and eloquence made him one of the most prominent attorneys and civil libertarians in the nation.
I. Reines Skier was a prominent local attorney and well-known Hawley resident. He was Assistant to the PA Attorney General under Governors Scranton, Shafer and Shapp. Attorney Skier was a prosecutor for the Liquor Control Board.
