DATE: 1840 -1920

SCOPE AND CONTENT:

The Holmes Conrad Collection contains documents concerning legal cases in which Conrad served as an attorney. The papers cover cases of litigation between the states of Virginia and West Virginia before the U.S. Supreme Court, and cases presented to the Virginia Supreme Court as well as Virgnia’s lower courts. The materials span a time period from late 1860s through to the early 1900s.

There are also miscellaneous papers from Conrad and his family, including stock certificates, receipts, notebooks, and drafts of speeches, as well as a number of religious pamphlets

BIOGRAPHICAL/HISTORICAL: Holmes Conrad was born in Winchester, Virginia, on January 31, 1840, to Robert Young Conrad and Elizabeth Whiting Powell. He attended Winchester Academy, Virginia Military Institute (VMI), and University of Virginia. During the Civil War, he rose from private to major, becoming Assistant Inspector General of Rosser’s Cavalry Division. After the war, he studied law while working in his father’s law office. He was admitted to the bar in 1866.

Conrad was elected to the Virginia House of Delegates, representing Winchester and Frederick County, in 1878. He created a thriving law practice in Washington, DC and handled several cases in the federal courts. In 1893, he was appointed Assistant Attorney General of the U.S., and in 1895 he became Solicitor General. He continued to be involved in cases before the Supreme Court for over 20 years despite presidential administration changes. In 1901, he took up a faculty position in the Georgetown University law school. He was also the first president of the Handley Board of Trustees and continued in that capacity until his death. Holmes Conrad was married twice and had seven children. He died on September 4, 1915, and is buried in Mt. Hebron Cemetery in Winchester.
