Taylor Nathan House, LL.B.

Richmond, Kentucky

Vice-President Henry Clay Law Society; Secretary Union Literary Society; Clerk Senior Court; Vice-President Jefferson Club; Royal Order E. L. E.

"Man is prone unto sin, even as the sparks fly upward." This man missed his calling, due to his animosity for T. U., yet we expect great things of him, for he tempers human justice with abstract justice, and when the application of legal principles seems conscienceless he disregards all rules and proves his argument by biblical phrases, quoting Paul as authority. He comes from aristocratic Richmond, and has the added distinction of having been a faithful and efficient subject during the reign of "She Pat."

-The Kentuckian, 1914
