"Lizzy" is another human of the song-bird variety; he can also wear nose glasses with the grace of an English peer. His one serious fault is that he is more than fond of the ladies—he loves them. Spare moments he devotes to Judge's curriculum. C.A.'s only knock on the law college is that it must be reached by climbing three flights of stairs.

-The Kentuckian, 1920
