The Wythe house in Williamsburg, so George Wythe?

Law professor to Jefferson, Tucker, and Marshall, namesake of W&M Law, and judge on the Virginia court of chancery.

Alfred Brophy

Shannon! You got it. That didn't take long -- about nine minutes. I think that's a record. Congratulations.


I feel like I cheated--I'm W&M law alum and when I lived in Williamsburg I ran through CW (and by George Wythe's house) frequently. Just glad you finally did one that I know (and happened to catch on my lunch!)

Alfred Brophy

That's not cheating ... that's relevant knowledge!

Bill Turnier

I think it is one of about four buildings in Colonial Williamsburg that are not reproductions.

Suzanne Munson

Found your blog on Google Alert for George Wythe. I am writing a biography about this excellent man--America's forgotten Founding Father. Hope to finish the book this fall.

Suzanne (if I may), very much looking forward to reading your biography. You have likely already seen my colleague Wythe Holt's article on Chancellor Wythe in the Alabama Law Review back in 2007:

You may also have seen Terry Meyers' important article on ideas about slavery in Williamsburg in the 18th century:
