Just a Country Lawyer: A Biography of Senator Sam Ervin

Cover
Indiana University Press, 1974 - 310 Seiten

This engaging and objective biography gives us a comprehensive account of Ervin's life and career, tracing his development from a shy romantic youth into the complex and mature man. The author tells of the boyhood years in North Carolina, the influences of family, friends, and history, the college years, World War I, and Harvard, as well as Ervin's frequently colorful apprenticeship as country lawyer, judge, state legislator, congressman, and senator.

Clancy brings to his task a thorough knowledge of Ervin developed while covering his activities prior to and during Watergate. He has had many exclusive private interviews with the Senator, his wife, family, friends, and staff during which Ervin in particular shared many reminiscences, anecdotes, and stories which have not appeared before.
