School in Newport, R. I. Years in College, 1892-1896. Degrees A.B. 
and A.M. in 1897 and LL.B. in 1900. He married Jessie Isabel Childs, 
February 24, 1905, at Philadelphia, Pa. Children, Jessie Isabel, No- 
vember 29, 1906, and Joseph Potter, Jr., October 13, 1908. He died 
March 10, 1931, at Johns Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore, Md. 

After graduating, Cotton taught for a year in the English Depart- 
ment of Harvard College, and received his A.M. degree in 1897. He 
then entered the Harvard Law School, receiving the LL.D. degree 
cmn latide in 1900. He was then admitted to the New York Bar, 
and took up general practice in New York City. 

In 1907 Cotton became a member of the firm of Cravath, Hender- 
son & de Gersdorff, continuing that connection for a year. He then 
practiced alone until 1910, when he formed a partnership with the 
late Senator Spooner under the firm name Spooner & Cotton. In 
1919 he became a member of the firm of McAdoo, Cotton & Frank- 
lin, with former Secretary William Gibbs McAdoo the senior mem- 
ber of the firm. In 1921 Mr. McAdoo moved to California, and 
Cotton became senior member of the firm of Cotton & Franklin, of 
which firm he remained a member until he became Under-Secretary 
of State. 

Cotton's career as a lawyer was brilliant and financially successful, 
and his position at the Bar was preeminent. He was active in semi- 
public work, and before the war he had been counsel for the Alaskan 
Engineering Commission, and for the New York State Commission 
on Workmen's Compensation. From 1915 he was consulting counsel 
for the Federal Reserve Board, and continued in that position until 
his association with the State Department in 1929. 



no HARVARD COLLEGE — CLASS 1896 

Cotton's war service began as counsel for the Emergency Fleet 
Corporation under General Goethals. He resigned shortly after Gen- 
eral Goethals' resignation. He then joined the Food Administration 
under President Hoover, and became chief of the Meat Division 
with headquarters in Chicago. In this position his work carried him 
over a wide territory in the United States and abroad. In 1918 he be- 
came European representative of the Federal Food Administration. 
He was also a member of the Interallied Finance Council. 

After the war Cotton returned to the practice of the law, main- 
taining meanwhile an active interest in educational and university 
affairs. He was a trustee of the Public Education Association of 
Antioch College and of Bennington College for Women. In 1926 
he acted as chairman for New York in the five million dollars en- 
dowment campaign for the Harvard Law School. His address at the 
dedication of the addition to Langdell Hall of the Harvard Law 
School, on September 25, 1929 (reprinted 33 Harvard Alumni Bul- 
letin 780, March 26, 1931) will be long remembered. 

On May 24, 1929, Cotton was appointed Under-Secretary of State 
by President Hoover, which position he held until his death. He had 
already gained the regard of the President, but the appointment is 
reputed to have been largely at the personal instance of the Secretary 
of State. Cotton had been on terms of intimacy — professional, po- 
litical and personal — with Secretary Stimson, and the appointment 
combined the President's desire to call distinguished citizens to im- 
portant posts with the Secretary's desire to magnify the position in 
charge of a man in whom he reposed personal confidence. The un- 
written history of the State Department bears the impress of Cot- 
ton's personality and effectiveness. Through his hands passed every 
paper destined for the Secretary of State, and his activities covered 
a wide field. He had much to do with the preparations for the 
London Naval Conference, and during Mr. Stimson's absence in 
London he virtually conducted the State Department in matters out- 
side the sphere of the Conference, and was the voice of the State 
Department in this country with respect to the attitude of our gov- 
ernment's delegation abroad. In the words of the Secretary of State, 
he " rendered service of literally inestimable value to the govern- 
ment," and " among his fellows in the State Department he won a 
position which was entirely unique." 

His death followed a series of operations which even his vitality 
was unable to withstand.
