Charles Spurgeon Ramsey, LL.B.

Sebree, Kentucky

Henry Clay Law Society.

Ramsey believes with General Lee that "Duty is the sublimest word in the English language." Convinced that still waters run deep he makes little noise but goes steadily on studying assiduously, and conscientiously performing every task assigned him. He never cared for the footlights' glare, but contented himself with burning the midnight oil (while the gas supply was cut off). Ramsey is taking a degree in a short time, and will return to the Second District to make his mark, meanwhile demonstrating that a lawyer can be an honest man for a' that.

-The Kentuckian, 1918
