    There is a lot of key historical figures who ended up in the Bronx. Richard Brookhiser wrote a book about him some years back. He said that he would be the one who’d call if you were arrested one night. Amusing interviews but found the book a bit lacking. Good luck with your effort.

    Check out writing by law prof/historian and former colleague William G. Ross at Cumberland. I think you’d enjoy.

    Morris also nearly got Tom Paine killed (or at least that’s how I think it went down). Seems like a story for the silver screen.

    What’s up w/ Morris’s funny first name? (I guess I could look at wikipedia, but this is a chance for you to show off.) It always sounded to me like his parents were hoping to inspire him to be some high official, but had a funny accent or trouble spelling- a bit like naming your kid “Doctor” or something.

    What about his half-brother’s name? Staats Long Morris.

    One account says it is his mother’s maiden name.
