As a member of the Republican Party, he was appointed Assistant Attorney General in 1900 by President McKinley. In 1903, he resigned in order to join the law firm of Sherman and Sterling. He continued his law practice until 1921 when he was appointed Solicitor General of the U.S. by President Harding. He resigned this post in 1925, but returned to public office in 1927 as a Republican Congressman. He was reelected three times and finally resigned in 1934. His most successful work was The Constitution of the United States in 1924 which sold over fifty thousand copies.
