Walter Elliott Mobley, LL.B.

Green, Kentucky

Henry Clay Law Society.

An honest lawyer in the rarest thing on earth. Mobley, the hard-working lad from Green, is the steady old wheelhorse twelve out of twenty-four hours. Honesty and frankness is his aim. He hopes to reverse the proverb, "Until hell is full will a lawyer ever get to Heaven."

-The Kentuckian, 1916
