Strangers to Us All Lawyers and Poetry

L.D. Covitt

(1905-    )

"[L.D. Covitt] [w]as born in Lithuania but was educated in the Boston public schools. He graduated from the University of Kentucky and received a Master's degree from Clark University and a law degree from Northwestern University. He has practiced and taught law." [J.T.C. Noe (ed.), A Brief Anthology of Kentucky Poetry 38 (Lexington: University of Kentucky Department of University Extension, 1936)] [J.T. Cotton Noe, the editor of the anthology, was also a lawyer and a poet.] [J.T. Cotton Noe]

[On March 7, 2007, with a heavy winter snow in progress, I located an article by L.D. Covitt, "The Legal Effect of Insolvency on Bank Deposits," which appeared in 81 U. Pa. L. Rev. 390 (1933). Covitt, according to the brief biographical information appended to the article, obtained his B.A. from the University of Kentucky in 1913, his M.A. from Clark University in 1915, and his J.D. from Northwestern in 1924. He served as an instructor at the University of Louisville from 1924 to 1928, and at the University of Miami Law School from 1928 to 1932. The footnote indicates that he was, at the time of the publication of the article, Dean of the Miami College of Law.]
