HARVARD JEW APPOINTED BY HUGO BLACK TO BE LAW CLERK

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

It has been revealed that by "mere coincidence" Justice Hugo L. Black has now on his working staff a Jew, and a negro who is at the same time a Catholic. The Jew is Jerome A. Cooper, a Harvard College and Law graduate. Cooper '38 has been appointed law clerk by the justice.

Earlier Justice Black had appointed Miss Annie Butt, a Catholic, as a secretary, and the Supreme Court had designated Leon Smallwood, a Negro and a Catholic as his messenger. Cooper is twenty-four years old, was born in Alamba, and graduated from the Harvard Law School in 1936.
