Biography:

J. Lee Rankin was born in Hartington, Nebraska, on July 7, 1907. He graduated from Lincoln High School in 1924 and received both his undergraduate (1928) and law (1930) degrees from the University of Nebraska. Rankin began his 20 year law career with a firm in Lincoln, Nebraska, after being admitted to the Nebraska Bar Association in 1930, when he graduated from law schoo. In 1952, he managed Nebraska Dwight Eisenhower presidential campaign in Nebraska. In 1953, he began his service as Assistant Attorney General.

Rankin served as the first Assistant Attorney General in charge of the Office of Legal Counsel of the United States from 1953-1956. During this time he argued in favor of the African-American plaintiffs in Brown v. Board of Education (1954), advocating that the doctrine of "separate-but-equal" facilities for blacks and whites was unconstitutional. After the United States Supreme Court's ruling in Brown, Rankin argued for a gradual desegregation of schools in order to avoid violence that might arise from the decision. Also during this time, Rankin assisted with claims among Western states to the Colorado River and balancing federal and state jurisdictions in offshore oil drilling.

On August 14, 1956, Rankin became Solicitor General of the United States, a position he held until 1961. In response to lawsuits in many states arising out of legislative reapportionment fights, he developed the Justice Department's position that led to the principle of one person, one vote. After this appointment, in 1961, Rankin represented the American Civil Liberties Union in advancing the landmark case, Gideon v. Wainwright, solidifying the right of an indigent person accused of a crime to have legal counsel at public expense. From 1961 to 1963 Rankin worked in private practice.

Following President John F. Kennedy's 1963 assassination, Rankin served as General Counsel for the Warren Commission that concluded that Lee Harvey Oswald had acted alone in killing President Kennedy. He served as general council from 1953-1964. He assisted in redrafting and editing the Commission's voluminous report. After his work with the Warren Commission, Rankin worked seven years as the New York City Corporation Counsel (1966-1972).

Rankin returned to private practice, working in New York and California, from 1972-1978. After retirement, Rankin and his wife, Gertrude, lived in Weston, Connecticut, and Los Gatos, California. J. Lee Rankin died on June 28, 1996.
