Over the last three years, author Mark Davis has reviewed the diaries and correspondence of the Bullitt family in the Filson’s collections. From stormy Louisville elections to friendships with celebrities, Davis brings to us the untold story of one of the nation’s most prominent lawyers in his book, Solicitor General Bullitt: The Life of William Marshall Bullitt.
Bullitt led an interesting life in addition to his many accomplishments as Solicitor General under the Taft administration. Davis will share details about Bullitt’s assistance to the family of Alice Speed Stoll, who was kidnapped in 1934. He will also discuss the first-hand descriptions of communist leader Joseph Stalin, whom Bullitt encountered on a trip to Moscow. While the lawyer was visiting the West Coast, he met with friends such as Jimmy Stewart and Hedda Hopper. This is the story of not only the lawyer, but the man as well.
Solicitor General Bullitt will be available for purchase during the event. You will have the opportunity to meet the author and have the book signed.
Reservations are suggested.
