Henry St. George Tucker III

For other people named Henry Tucker, see Henry Tucker (disambiguation).

Henry St. George Tucker, III (April 5, 1853-July 23, 1932) was a representative from the Commonwealth of Virginia to the United States House of Representatives, professor of law, and president of the American Bar Association. He was born to Laura (née Powell) and John Randolph Tucker in Winchester, Virginia, and received a B.L. from Washington and Lee University School of Law in 1876. He married Henrietta Preston Johnson in 1877, and had several children, among them John Randolph Tucker (1879-1954). In 1898, he purchased the Col Alto estate at Lexington, Virginia.[1]

Tucker was elected to the 51st Congress as a Democrat and served four terms. He thereupon returned to Washington and Lee, where he was elected to the professorship of constitutional law and equity in 1897. Three years later he was made Dean of the Law School, in 1900. He was dean of the school of law at Columbian University (now George Washington University) from 1903 to 1905, when he became President of the Jamestown Exposition.

He returned to Congress in 1922, after a hiatus of nearly 25 years, when he was elected to the 67th Congress upon the death of Henry D. Flood in 1921. He served until his own death in 1932.
