expand/collapse Expand/collapse Biographical Information

Charles Walter Tillett (1888-1952) was born in Mangum, N.C., 6 February 1888, the son of Charles Walter and Carrie Patterson Tillett. He was educated at the Webb School, Bell Buckle, Tenn.; earned an A.B. degree from the University of North Carolina in 1909; and studied law at the University of North Carolina in 1909 and 1910. He was a member of Phi Beta Kappa, the Order of the Golden Fleece, and Sigma Alpha Epsilon.

Tillett, like his father, chose to enter the legal profession and was admitted to the Bar in 1910. After a short period as a company commander during World War I (he never saw combat), he practiced law in Charlotte, N.C., and, at the time of his death, was senior partner in the law firm of Tillett, Campbell, Craighill, and Randleman. Tillett became prominent in his profession, serving as chair of the American Bar Association's Section on International and Comparative Law (two terms), president of the North Carolina Bar Association (1935-1936), and member of the North Carolina Board of Law Examiners (1933-1943), which he helped to establish.

A major proponent of the United Nations and international law, Tillett wrote and spoke frequently on the United Nations and served as an unofficial correspondent for the Charlotte News at the San Francisco Conference in 1945. His advocacy of international law led him to testify before a United States Senate subcommittee in 1952, urging acceptance by the United States of compulsory jurisdiction of the International Court of Justice.

Tillett served on the Board of Trustees of the University of North Carolina from 1932 to 1937. He also served as president of the General Alumni Association and of the Horace Williams Philosophical Society.

Tillett engaged in civic work as well, serving on the Charlotte School Board from 1919 to 1923 and as attorney for the city modernists during the evolution controversy in North Carolina in the 1920s. Tillett was active in the Democratic Party, serving as a delegate to the 1944 Democratic National Convention. Charles Tillett's wife, Gladys Avery Tillett (1891-1984), whom he married in 1917, was even more active in the Party, and the two collaborated in their speech writing and probably on other efforts as well.

Tillett, who had suffered from clinical depression, committed suicide by plunging to his death from his Charlotte office building on 23 December 1952.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Series 2. Research and Subject Files, 1907-1952.

About 600 items.

Arrangement: by subject.

Correspondence, printed material, and notes on various subjects and issues in which Charles Tillett was involved or had some interest. Much of the printed material was used by Tillett in researching his speeches. Correspondence and political and legal materials are also included in this series, documenting Tillett's involvement in Charlotte City and Mecklenburg County  politics; various legal matters; his work on the commission formed to erect a memorial to the three North Carolina-born presidents on the State Capitol grounds; and his involvement in University affairs after graduation from the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, including service on the Board of Trustees and as president of the General Alumni Association.

Correspondence dealing with the commission for a memorial to the three North Carolina presidents contains letters, largely of an official nature, from Josephus Daniels, written in 1947. The UNC material contains correspondence between Tillett and University President Edward Kidder Graham, written in the 1910s, concerning the Conference for Social Service, of which Tillett was a member, and the Mecklenburg Alumni Association. Also included is correspondence of a personal nature with Frank Porter Graham from the same period and printed and typescript copies of speeches given by Edward Kidder Graham, Frank Porter Graham, and Tillett at UNC. North Carolina Governor John C. B. Ehringhaus is represented by a letter he wrote to Tillett in 1933 concerning his educational policies. Note that original file folder titles have, for the most part, been retained.
