Background[edit] Thurman was born in the frontier ranch town of Laramie, Wyoming, which grew to be a small city and location of the University of Wyoming. He was the son of Annie (Brockway) and Constantine Peter Arnold.[2] He began his university studies at Wabash College, but transferred to Princeton, earning his B.A. in 1911. He earned his law degree from Harvard Law School in 1914.


Career[edit] Early days[edit] He served in World War I, rising to the rank of lieutenant in the U.S. Army (Field Artillery) and worked briefly in Chicago before returning to Laramie, where he was a member of the Wyoming House of Representatives in 1921 and then mayor from 1923-1924.[1] He developed a reputation as a maverick lawyer.[1] He was a Lecturer at the University of Wyoming from 1921 to 1926. He was dean of the College of Law at West Virginia University from 1927 to 1930. He was a visiting professor at Yale from 1930 to 1931; he was then a full professor of law there from 1931 to 1938. Civil service[edit] Thurman Arnold Building in Washington, D.C.. He was a special assistant to general counsel of the Agricultural Adjustment Administration in 1933. He was an assistant U.S. Attorney general of U.S. Department of Justice from 1938 to 1943. As chief competition lawyer for the United States government, Arnold launched numerous studies to support the antitrust efforts in the late 1930s.[1] He targeted the American Medical Association in their anti-competitive efforts against health plans.[1] The Roosevelt administration later de-emphasized antitrust enforcements, for the stated purpose of allowing corporations to concentrate on contributing to victory in World War II.[1] In 1943, Arnold was appointed as a judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, succeeding Wiley B. Rutledge, who had been promoted to the U.S. Supreme Court. He was "kicked upstairs" by FDR to the Court of Appeals in order to get him out of the Antitrust division.[1] Although it had some responsibility for review of decisions by federal administrative agencies, during Arnold's tenure the court's primary role was reviewing decisions of local trial courts involving routine civil and criminal matters arising in Washington, D.C.. Arnold was never happy during his time on the court, resigning after only two years on the bench. As an explanation of his decision, he told observers he "would rather be speaking to damn fools than listening to damn fools." Arnold & Porter[edit] He returned to private practice in Washington, DC where, along with Paul A. Porter and Abe Fortas, he cofounded the law firm known today as Arnold & Porter.


Personal and death[edit] Thurman married his lifelong partner Frances Longan Arnold on September 4, 1917. They had two children, Thurman Jr. and George, both of whom enjoyed successful careers in the law. Nebraskan "Hugh Cox, famous as Thurman Arnold's chief deputy" and also as an early partner at Root Clark & Bird[3] (later Root, Clark, Buckner & Ballantine; later Dewey Ballantine, later Dewey & LeBouef) was attorney for Donald Hiss (both Cox and Hiss at Covington & Burling, where he was called the "perfect advocate"[4]) during the Hiss-Chambers Case."[5][6][7] Arnold died on November 7, 1969. Thurman Arnold Jr. established a law firm in Palm Springs, California in 1953.[8] Thurman Arnold Jr.'s son, Thurman Arnold III,[9] joined his father's law firm in 1982 and is currently practicing law with an emphasis on Family Law in Palm Springs, California. George married and raised a family with Ellen Cameron Pearson, daughter of columnist Drew Pearson and granddaughter of Cissy Patterson, owner of the Washington Times-Herald.
