Harris Shelton was founded by Walter C. Chandler, a philanthropist, civic leader, and longtime public servant who represented Memphis in both the Tennessee and U.S. House of Representatives (authoring the first bankruptcy wage-earner law) as well as for multiple mayoral terms. Mr. Chandler’s most prominent accomplishment in private practice was his representation of the plaintiffs in the landmark U. S. Supreme Court decision in Baker v. Carr, known to all students of constitutional law as the ruling that opened the courthouse to individuals seeking equal representation.
