From the Annals of the Halls of Justice – In 1899, Thomas Campbell Clark was born in Dallas. Clark was born to a family of lawyers. He naturally attended the University of Texas School of Law graduating in 1922. He worked in his father’s law firm for several years before becoming a prosecutor in Dallas County. He later served in the Department of Justice becoming a political ally of Harry Truman. He worked with Truman to ferret out corruption in the war effort but also to his later regret worked on the internment of Japanese-Americans during WWII. Truman appointed him as U.S. Attorney General from 1945 to 1949 and then appointed him to the Supreme Court of the United States in 1949. He resigned from the Court in 1967 when his ungrateful son Ramsey Clark was appointed as U.S. Attorney General. He remains the only Justice of the Supreme Court to have attended law school in Texas.
