POMEROY, John Norton, lawyer, born in Rochester, New York, 12 April, 1828; died in San Francisco, California, 15 February, 1885. He was graduated at Hamilton college in 1847, and, after studying law, was admitted in 1851 to the bar. For several years thereafter he followed his profession in Rochester, but in 1864 he came to New York city and accepted the chair of law in the University of the city of New York, becoming dean of the legal faculty, and also for a time delivering lectures on political science. In 1869 he returned to Rochester and continued the practice of law until 1878, when he was called to the professorship of law in the University of California, which chair he held until his death. In 1865 he received the degree of LL. D. from Hamilton. Professor Pomeroy was a frequent contributor to "The Nation," the "North American Review," and the "American Law Review" on topics connected with international law, general jurisprudence, and social science, and in 1884-'5 he edited the "West Coast Reporter." He prepared editions, with notes, of "Sedgwick's Statutory and Constitutional Law" (New York, 1874) and "Archbold's Criminal Law" (1876), and was the author of "An Introduction to Municipal Law" (1865); "An Introduction to the Constitutional Law of the United States," which is used as a textbook at the United States military academy and other colleges (Boston, 1868); "Remedies and Remedial Rights according to the Reformed American Procedure" (Boston, 1876) ; " A Treatise on the Specific Performance of Contract" (New York, 1879) ; "A Treatise on Equity Jurisprudence " (San Francisco, 1883) ; and "A Treatise on Riparian Rights" (St. Paul, 1884).

In this powerful, historic work, Stan Klos unfolds the complex 15-year U.S.
Founding period revealing, for the first time, four distinctly different United
American Republics. This is history on a splendid scale -- a book about the not
quite unified American Colonies and States that would eventually form a fourth
republic, with only 11 states, the United States of America: We The
People. Click Here
