    Biographical Sketch

    Percy Vincent Long was born in Sonora, California, March 26, 1870. He studied law independently and was admitted to the California bar in 1892 and to practice before the United States Supreme Court in 1905. In 1903 he was elected City Attorney of San Francisco, a position which he held almost continuously until 1918. He then became assistant general counsel for the National Board of Fire Underwriters. From about 1938 until shortly before his death in 1953, he was the senior member of the San Francisco law firm of Long and Levit.

    Scope and Content

    Long's Papers relate mainly to his activities in the Republican Party and to his booklet The Story of the Constitution. A few concern his work as a member of the San Francisco Juvenile Probation Committee.
