Charles W. Tillett

Record #:
Charles Tillett was born in Richmond County and was a graduate of the University of North Carolina. He was one of the ablest lawyers of modern times and won many a hard-fought battle in the courts. One was a case brought by a Fundamentalist group to prevent the North Carolina public schools from teaching the theory of evolution. By winning, he spared the state from the problems that befell other states on this issue.
