Thomas M. Cooley

a.k.a. Thomas McIntyre Cooley

Author Code: ATMC

Born: Jan. 6, 1824 - Attica, New York, USA

Died: Sep. 12, 1898 - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA

Cooley studied law in 1842 under Theron Strong in New York before moving to Michigan in 1843 where he continued to study in law offices. He was admitted to the bar in 1846 and opened a law practice, while at the same time pursuing literary and journalistic endeavors. In 1848, he helped to found the Free Soil Party in Michigan and subsequently joined the Republican Party in 1856. In 1859, he was appointed as one of the first professors of law at the University of Michigan. In 1864, he was elected to the Michigan Supreme Court and continued to serve for twenty years. In 1868, he published Treatise on the Constitutional Limitations Which Rest Upon the Legislative Power of the States of the American Union, a work that became one of the most important legal treatises of the late nineteenth century. He made an unsuccessful bid for Congress in 1872 and he supported Grover Cleveland in 1884 and again in 1892. Cleveland appointed Cooley to the Interstate Commerce Commission in 1887. Cooley was a prolific writer and contributed numerous articles to law journals in addition to his many legal texts. He left the ICC due to failing health brought on by overwork and, after his wife's death in 1890, he more or less retired from active work. His writings include Treatise on the Law of Taxation (1876), A Treatise on the Law of Torts (1878), The General Principle of Constitutional Law in the United States (1880), Influence of Habits of Thought Upon Our Institutions (1886), Federal Supreme Court - Its Place in the American Constitutional System (1889), Michigan: A History of Governments (1889) and Elements of Torts (1895).
