Salmon P. Chase

Salmon P. Chase was the notable Founder of the Cincinnati Law School. His career as an attorney was marked by his increasing prominence in the anti-slavery movement. In 1848 he was elected to the US Senate and in 1855 became the first Republican Governor of Ohio. Lincoln named him Secretary of the Treasury, and he had the enormous task of financing the Civil War. He founded the Internal Revenue Service and created the National Banking System. He was also appointed as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court and he conducted two of the most spectacular trials in history - the treason trial of Jefferson Davis and the impeachment trial of Andrew Johnson. He died in 1873.
