Answer to Episode 3 Trivia Question

In Episode 3 of the podcast, we asked the following:

"Our Episode 3 guest, Lee Cross, is a graduate of the University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC) Law School. UMKC is one of only seven law schools to count among their alumni a President of the United States (Truman) and a Supreme Court Justice (Charles Evans Whittaker). We want to know what the other six schools are."

The correct answer is, in alphabetical order:
  • University of Cincinnati (in this case, it's one man - William Howard Taft, who was both President and later Chief Justice of the Supreme Court)
  • Columbia University
  • Harvard University
  • University of Virginia (founded by Thomas Jefferson)
  • College of William & Mary
  • Yale University

Princeton University gets an honorable mention, as many Supreme Court Justices did undergrad work there,  as well as three Presidents - JFK, Madison and Wilson (who also served as Princeton's President) - but Princeton lacks a law school.
