About this title


Praised by mayors, governors, presidents and patriarchs, Charles Tuttle (1879-1971) was described by The New York Times at the end of his life as "a leader in law, education and religion for six decades."

One admiring contemporary observed that the talented lawyer and writer spoke and wrote "in fine-flowing language, that now breathes with poetic beauty, and again may thrill with dramatic narration." Charles Tuttle's marvelous gift for storytelling is evident throughout LIFE STORIES, an engaging and richly illustrated book. Whether in offering an insider's glimpse into a memorable legal case, or recounting his 1930 New York gubernatorial campaign against Franklin D. Roosevelt, or writing of his love and guardianship of Lake George, or recalling poignant moments of his sixty-one-year marriage, the "life stories" flowing from the pen of Charles Tuttle offer a vibrantly chronicled glimpse into an extraordinarily inspiring life.

A prolific writer throughout his life, Charles Tuttle completed his autobiography in the year immediately preceding his death. But his extraordinary book was not released to the public until 2002, the hundredth anniversary of the launching of his illustrious legal career. As editor Charlotte Walkup observes, "The stories of Charles Tuttle's life and times are as compelling today as when he recorded them."

"There is much of special interest in the book to historians and lawyers," notes editor Walkup in the book's Foreword. "But no degree in law or history is needed to enjoy the humor and dramatic anecdotes, the delightful writing, and the strong assertion of the hope and joy to be found in living. The language is molded by the Biblical literature which nurtured the writer, by the wisdom of the classics which he knew well, and by the optimism of the times in which he grew to manhood."

The 386-page book is filled with the vibrancy and humor of its author, as well as more than 80 photos and illustrations. Included among the images are archival photographs of Charles Tuttle in New York and Lake George, as well as photos of the mayors, governors, presidents and patriarchs who praised and honored their colleague during his illustrious career.

Much of the book centers upon Charles Tuttle's luminous and lively career in New York City as a renowned advocate for law, education, and religion. Additionally, there are fascinating portions of the memoirs focusing upon his ardent devotion and guardianship of Lake George, NY. For 150 years, the Tuttle family has been a prominent and integral part of the Lake George area, involved in the founding of St. James Episcopal Church, the establishment of Top O' The World resort on French Mountain, ongoing support of the lake's preservation through the Lake George Association, and as continuous summer residents, beginning with "Rockledge" cottage in the 19th Century, and at "Halcyon" for the majority of the 20th century, and into the 21st century.

One of the unique historical features of the book is the revealing section on Tuttle's political career, both as U.S. District Attorney, appointed by President Calvin Coolidge in 1927, and as candidate for governor of New York in 1930, including personal reminiscences and illustrations, as well as magazine and newspaper accounts, photographs and classic political cartoons.

Charles Tuttle concludes his memoirs by observing, "God has created an exciting Universe, intending that His children should lead exciting lives." His own exciting life offers captivating and inspiring reading throughout the pages of LIFE STORIES.
