Re: James Draper St. Clair



I know little about genealogy but chanced across the following;

James St. Clair (Obit)

Age: 80

leading Boston trial lawyer who represented President Richard Nixon in 1974
during the Watergate scandal. He also defended Yale University chaplain Rev.
William Sloane Coffin, who was accused of encouraging draft evasion, and
represented the Boston School Committee in its battle against mandatory
busing.

Died: Westwood, Mass., March 10, 2001

He was related to Nixon's wife both were descendants of James Wickenden (b.
bef. 1738) in the Channel Islands.  He was also distantly related to Charles
W. Colson  You can find a lot of  info in from Public NewsRoom: Public
Newsroom: James St. Clair Remembered and St. Clair, James D [ and others].
