Biography | show moreshow less
Thomas Gregory (1861-1933) was a regent at the University of Texas before joining other former conservatives in supporting Woodrow Wilson's presidential campaign in 1911. His support opened up numerous appointments within Wilson's administration that culminated in his being appointed U. S. Attorney General (1914-1919). Gregory was generally progressive but drew criticism for collaborating with U. S. Postmaster General Albert S. Burleson to suppress domestic dissent of the American war effort during World War I, including framing the Espionage Act of 1917, encouraging illegal surveillance of citizens by the right-wing American Protective League and directing federal prosecutions of over 2,000 opponents of the war. After resigning as Attorney General, he was made a member of Wilson's Second Industrial Conference (1919-1920) and resumed his law practice.
