Oliver W. Hill, 1907-2007

Oliver W. Hill, 1907-2007

Oliver W. Hill, an NAACP lawyer who worked on the landmark Brown v. Board of Education case, passed away on Sunday at the age of 100.

Mr. Hill’s autobiography, published in 2000, is available in the Langdell Reading Room.

Janet pointed out to me that Professor Ogletree has posted a letter — in celebration of Mr. Hill’s life and legacy — on the web site for the Charles Hamilton Houston Institute for Race & Justice.
