Biographical/Historical Note

Mitchell Long was born on November 15, 1889 in Pulaski, Tennessee, to William Brown and Eliza (McGoldrick) Long. He studied law under General Charles T. Cates, Jr. and was admitted to the Tennessee Bar in 1914. During World War I, he served as a Captain with the 114th Field Artillery in the American Expeditionary Forces. Long married Katherine Lee Lockett on February 20, 1923 and the couple had one son, Mitchell (1924-). For most of his professional career, Long practiced law with Cates, Smith & Long (1921-1945) and Cates, Fowler & Long (1945-1953). In addition to his practice, Long served as the Director, Chairman of the Board, and General Counsel for Sterchi Bros. Stores, Inc., as Director and General Counsel for Jefferson Woolen Mills, and as General Counsel for the Hamilton National Bank. Mitchell Long died in Knoxville on April 2, 1953.
