The Missouri Tigers athletics programs include the extramural and intramural sports teams of the University of Missouri, located in Columbia, United States. The name comes from a band of armed guards called the Fighting Tigers of Columbia who, in 1864, protected Columbia from guerrillas during the Civil War; the University of Missouri is the flagship institution of the University of Missouri System. Mizzou is a member of the Southeastern Conference and is the only NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision program in Missouri, its wrestling program, the only one sponsored by an SEC member school, competes in the Mid-American Conference. Prior to joining the SEC in 2012, Missouri was a charter member of the Big 12 Conference, created with the merger of the former Big Eight Conference and four schools from the former Southwest Conference, which began athletic competition in the 1996–97 academic year. Missouri competed in the Missouri Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Association starting in 1907, which changed its name to the Big Eight Conference in 1964.
The first Missouri Tigers baseball team was in 1868. The first recorded season was in 1891, when the Tigers went 2–2; the Tigers won the National Championship in 1954. The presence of former Missouri Tiger baseball players in professional baseball continues to grow each year. Former MU head coach Tim Jamieson has seen 40 players in his 13-year tenure sign pro contracts. Notable Tiger baseball alumni include Tim Laudner, who played for the 1987 World Champion Minnesota Twins, Phil Bradley, who played for several teams in 1980s and early 1990s, current Major Leaguer Ian Kinsler. In 2006, pitcher Max Scherzer was selected in the first round with the 11th overall pick by the Arizona Diamondbacks. Scherzer went on to win the Al Cy Young Award with the Detroit Tigers in 2013. In 2008, pitcher Aaron Crow was picked 9th overall by the Washington Nationals; the men's basketball program has produced several NBA players, including Anthony Peeler, Doug Smith, Jon Sundvold, Steve Stipanovich, Kareem Rush, Keyon Dooling, Linas Kleiza, Thomas Gardner, Jordan Clarkson and DeMarre Carroll.
The Tigers were a national power under Norm Stewart, whose tenure spanned four decades but which failed to include a Final Four appearance despite numerous conference championships. The team advanced to the Elite Eight under Quin Snyder in 2002, but inconsistent performance and various improprieties in his leadership of the program caused him to be fired in the midst of an abysmal 2006 season, he was replaced with then-UAB head coach Mike Anderson. In 2009 the team lost in the Elite Eight to the Connecticut Huskies. After a first-round exit from the NCAA tournament in 2011, Anderson took the head coaching position with the University of Arkansas; the head coaching vacancy was filled in early April 2011 with Frank Haith, the former Miami head coach who left after the 2013 season to go Tulsa. In 2014, Kim Anderson became the new head basketball coach; the program is now led by Cuonzo Martin. The 1920–21 and 1921–22 teams were retroactively named national champions by the Premo-Porretta Power Poll.
The current head coach of the women's basketball program is Robin Pingeton of Illinois State. She was hired in April 2010 to replace Cindy Stein, who resigned under pressure from boosters and media after the 2009–10 season; the university's first football team was formed in 1890 by the sophomore class of the "Academic School". They challenged a team of Engineering students in April of that year upon encouragement of Dr. A. L. McRea, a university professor. Interest in the sport grew among the students and administrators, a Foot Ball Association was formed at a meeting on October 10, 1890; the first intercollegiate game for the university took place on Thanksgiving Day, 1890, when Missouri played Washington University before a crowd of 3,000 in St. Louis, Missouri; the Washington University team, playing for several years defeated the University of Missouri team by a score of 28–0. Missouri has compiled a 15–16 record in bowl games, including a 41-31 victory over Oklahoma State in the 2014 Cotton Bowl and a 33-17 win over Minnesota in the 2015 Citrus Bowl.
It has finished in the final Associated Press poll Top Ten eight times since the poll began in 1936, has had two top-five finishes since 2007. Missouri softball began play in 1975. Missouri has appeared in seven Women's College World Series, in 1981, 1983, 1991, 1994, 2009, 2010 and 2011. Hearnes Center is home to the Missouri Tigers' nationally ranked wrestling program. For 16 years Brian Smith has been the university's head wrestling coach. Since 1998, Smith has received honors for his coaching accomplishments at the University of Missouri: Dan Gable Coach of the Year, NWCA President, Big 12 Coach of the Year. Ben Askren and J'den Cox have gone onto represent the United States in the Olympic Games, in 2008 and 2016, respectively. Cox earned the bronze medal at 86 kg. Ben Askren, Tyron Woodley, Michael Chandler are among the few from the university's wrestling program to make the transition to Mixed Martial Arts.

Herbert Brownell Jr.
Herbert Brownell Jr. was an attorney and a Republican Party organizer. From 1953 to 1957, he was the United States Attorney General in the administration of President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Brownell, one of the seven children of Herbert and May Miller Brownell, was born in Nemaha County, near the town of Peru, his father, Herbert Brownell, was a professor and author at the Peru State Normal School in education and physical sciences. After graduating Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Nebraska in 1924, and, in his senior year, being a member of the Society of Innocents, Brownell attended Yale Law School, earning his law degree in 1927. While at the University of Nebraska, he joined The Delta Upsilon Fraternity. Brownell's brother, Samuel Brownell, served as U. S. Commissioner of Education from 1953 through 1956. Susan B. Anthony was Herbert Brownell's cousin. Brownell was admitted to the bar in New York, began his practice in New York City. In February 1929, he joined the law firm of Lord Day & Lord in New York, except for periods of public service, he remained with them until his retirement in 1989.
He married Doris McCarter on June 16, 1934. They had four children and remained together until McCarter's death on June 12, 1979, he married his second wife Marion Taylor in 1987, but the couple separated and divorced in December 1989. Besides his law practice, Brownell had a active political career as a Republican, he was a member of the New York State Assembly in 1933, 1934, 1935, 1936 and 1937. In 1942, he was the campaign manager for Thomas Dewey's election as governor of New York, he managed Dewey's 1944 and 1948 campaigns for president. From 1944 to 1946, he was the chairman of the Republican National Committee, where he focused on modernizing it with advanced polling methods and fundraising techniques, he was credited by many as being instrumental in helping the Republicans to gain control of the US Congress in the 1946 midterm elections. In 1952, Brownell was instrumental in convincing General Dwight Eisenhower supreme allied commander in Europe, to run for President of the United States and worked in the Eisenhower campaign.
Along with Dewey, Brownell was instrumental in Eisenhower's selection of Richard Nixon as the vice-presidential running mate. Eisenhower appointed Brownell Attorney General, he served from January 21, 1953 until October 23, 1957. On November 6, 1953 Brownell told members of the Chicago Executives Club, "Harry Dexter White was a Russian spy.... He smuggled secret documents to Russian agents for transmission to Moscow." Early in his term, he was involved in several landmark civil rights cases, including Brown v. Board of Education. Although it was weakened by the US Senate, he drafted the legislative proposal that became the Civil Rights Act of 1957, the first civil rights law enacted since 1875; because of his strong stance in favor of civil rights, Brownell became unpopular in the South. Eisenhower reluctantly decided not to nominate Brownell to the Supreme Court when vacancies occurred in 1957 and 1958, as he feared that segregationists in the Senate would fight and defeat the nomination. Brownell stepped down as a Attorney General only after his advice was followed in the Little Rock desegregation case.
Osro Cobb, the United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Arkansas, reflects on Brownell's tenure:... Brownell had stuck by his guns for the hard line on the integration dispute, his advice had been followed. The government was committed with no easy way to extricate itself. Many people on both sides of the controversy were becoming unhappy. I am inclined to believe that while Mr. Brownell was genuinely pleased with the policy, he was grievously disappointed that it had not achieved better results; the impasse with Governor Orval Faubus may have contributed to his decision to retire. We may not get the answer until and if he writes his memoirs, but I doubt it then because the Herbert Brownell I grew to know would not write about his personal secrets. Mr. Brownell was both praised and condemned as he departed from office.... In 1965, Brownell chaired a committee to find civilians, who would serve on the first impartial Civilian Complaint Review Board of New York City, the first such citizen oversight of police in the country.
Brownell took himself out of consideration for appointment by President Nixon as Chief Justice of the United States to replace Earl Warren in 1969, the eventual replacement being Warren E. Burger. Brownell served as the United States representative to the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague and from 1972 to 1974, he was special U. S. envoy to Mexico for negotiations over the Colorado River. In addition to many honors and other civic roles, Brownell was President of the New York City Bar Association in 1982. From 1986 to 1989 he served on the Commission for the Bicentennial of the United States Constitution, he died of cancer at the New York Hospital Cornell-Medical Center in Manhattan, New York, at 92.

The United Nations is an intergovernmental organization, tasked to maintain international peace and security, develop friendly relations among nations, achieve international co-operation and be a centre for harmonizing the actions of nations. The headquarters of the UN is in Manhattan, New York City, is subject to extraterritoriality. Further main offices are situated in Geneva, Nairobi and The Hague; the organization is financed by voluntary contributions from its member states. Its objectives include maintaining international peace and security, protecting human rights, delivering humanitarian aid, promoting sustainable development and upholding international law; the UN is the largest, most familiar, most internationally represented and most powerful intergovernmental organization in the world. In 24 October 1945, at the end of World War II, the organization was established with the aim of preventing future wars. At its founding, the UN had 51 member states; the UN is the successor of the ineffective League of Nations.
On 25 April 1945, 50 governments met in San Francisco for a conference and started drafting the UN Charter, adopted on 25 June 1945 in the San Francisco Opera House, signed on 26 June 1945 in the Herbst Theatre auditorium in the Veterans War Memorial Building. This charter took effect on 24 October 1945; the UN's mission to preserve world peace was complicated in its early decades during the Cold War between the United States and Soviet Union and their respective allies. Its missions have consisted of unarmed military observers and armed troops with monitoring and confidence-building roles; the organization's membership grew following widespread decolonization which started in the 1960s. Since 80 former colonies had gained independence, including 11 trust territories, which were monitored by the Trusteeship Council. By the 1970s its budget for economic and social development programmes far outstripped its spending on peacekeeping. After the end of the Cold War, the UN shifted and expanded its field operations, undertaking a wide variety of complex tasks.
The UN has six principal organs: the General Assembly. The UN System agencies include the World Bank Group, the World Health Organization, the World Food Programme, UNESCO, UNICEF; the UN's most prominent officer is the Secretary-General, an office held by Portuguese politician and diplomat António Guterres since 1 January 2017. Non-governmental organizations may be granted consultative status with ECOSOC and other agencies to participate in the UN's work; the organization, its officers and its agencies have won many Nobel Peace Prizes. Other evaluations of the UN's effectiveness have been mixed; some commentators believe the organization to be an important force for peace and human development, while others have called the organization ineffective, biased, or corrupt. In the century prior to the UN's creation, several international treaty organizations such as the International Committee of the Red Cross was formed to ensure protection and assistance for victims of armed conflict and strife.
In 1914, a political assassination in Sarajevo set off a chain of events that led to the outbreak of World War I. As more and more young men were sent down into the trenches, influential voices in the United States and Britain began calling for the establishment of a permanent international body to maintain peace in the postwar world. President Woodrow Wilson became a vocal advocate of this concept, in 1918 he included a sketch of the international body in his 14-point proposal to end the war. In November 1918, the Central Powers agreed to an armistice to halt the killing in World War I. Two months the Allies met with Germany and Austria-Hungary at Versailles to hammer out formal peace terms. President Wilson wanted peace, but the United Kingdom and France disagreed, forcing harsh war reparations on their former enemies; the League of Nations was approved, in the summer of 1919 Wilson presented the Treaty of Versailles and the Covenant of the League of Nations to the US Senate for ratification.
On January 10, 1920, the League of Nations formally comes into being when the Covenant of the League of Nations, ratified by 42 nations in 1919, takes effect. However, at some point the League became ineffective when it failed to act against the Japanese invasion of Manchuria as in February 1933, 40 nations voted for Japan to withdraw from Manchuria but Japan voted against it and walked out of the League instead of withdrawing from Manchuria, it failed against the Second Italo-Ethiopian War despite trying to talk to Benito Mussolini as he used the time to send an army to Africa, so the League had a plan for Mussolini to just take a part of Ethiopia, but he ignored the League and invaded Ethiopia, the League tried putting sanctions on Italy, but Italy had conquered Ethiopia and the League had failed. After Italy conquered Ethiopia and other nations left the league, but all of them realised that they began to re-arm as fast as possible. During 1938, Britain and France tried negotiating directly with Hitler but this failed in 1939 when Hitler invaded Czechoslovakia.
When war broke out in 1939, the League closed down and its headquarters in Geneva remained empty throughout the war. The earliest concrete plan for a new world organization began under the aegis of the U. S. State Department in 1939; the text of the "Declaration by United Nations" was drafted at the White House on December 29, 1941, by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, Prime Minister Winston Churchill, Roosevelt aide Harry Hopkins
United States Attorney General
The United States Attorney General is the chief lawyer of the federal government of the United States, head of the United States Department of Justice per 28 U. S. C. § 503, oversees all governmental legal affairs. Under the Appointments Clause of the United States Constitution, the officeholder is nominated by the President of the United States and appointed with the advice and consent of the United States Senate; the U. S. Constitution provides that civil officers of the United States, which would include the U. S. Attorney General, may be impeached by Congress for treason, bribery or high crimes and misdemeanors; the United States Attorney General may be removed at will by the President of the United States under the Supreme Court decision Myers v. United States, which found that executive branch officials may be removed without the consent of any entity. In cases of the federal death penalty, the power to seek the death penalty rests with the U. S. Attorney General; the current Attorney General is William Barr.
Congress passed the Judiciary Act of 1789 which, among other things, established the Office of the Attorney General. The original duties of this officer were "to prosecute and conduct all suits in the Supreme Court in which the United States shall be concerned, to give his advice and opinion upon questions of law when required by the President of the United States, or when requested by the heads of any of the departments"; the Department of Justice was established in 1870 to support the Attorney General in the discharge of their responsibilities. The Attorney General, the Secretary of State, the Secretary of the Treasury, the Secretary of Defense are regarded as the four most important Cabinet officials in the United States because of the significance and age of their respective departments, it is the practice for the Attorney General, along with many other public officials, to give resignation with effect on the Inauguration Day of a new President. The Deputy Attorney General, required to tender their resignation, is requested to stay on and act as Attorney General pending the confirmation by the Senate of the new Attorney General.
For example, on the inauguration of President Donald Trump on January 20, 2017, the tenure of the Attorney General Loretta Lynch was brought to an end, the Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, who had tendered her resignation, was asked to stay on and be Acting Attorney General until the confirmation of the new Attorney General Jeff Sessions, nominated for the office in November 2016 by then-President-elect Donald Trump.

Nathan Roscoe Pound was a distinguished American legal scholar and educator. He was Dean of University of Nebraska College of Law from 1903 to 1911 and Dean of Harvard Law School from 1916 to 1936, he was a member of the faculty at UCLA School of Law in the school's first years, from 1949 to 1952. The Journal of Legal Studies has identified Pound as one of the most cited legal scholars of the 20th century. Pound was born in Nebraska, to Stephen Bosworth Pound and Laura Pound. Pound studied botany at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln, where he became a member of the Chi Phi Fraternity, he received his bachelor's degree in 1888 and his master's degree in 1889. In 1889 he began the study of law, he received the first PhD in botany from the University of Nebraska in 1898. The University of Nebraska fielded its first football team the year. Pound traveled with the teams including their first one, he covered the team in the student newspaper and refereed some. Pound created many chants and songs for the team and helped create a fan base that traveled well, something that the Cornhuskers still see to this day.
In 1903 Pound became dean of the University of Nebraska College of Law. In 1911 Pound began teaching at Harvard and in 1916 became dean of Harvard Law School and served in that role until 1937, he wrote "Spurious Interpretation" in 1907, Outlines of Lectures on Jurisprudence in 1914, The Spirit of the Common Law in 1921, Law and Morals in 1924, Criminal Justice in America in 1930. In 1908 he was part of the founding editorial staff of the first comparative law journal in the United States, the Annual Bulletin of the Comparative Law Bureau of the American Bar Association. Although it is not remembered now, Pound was a Roman law scholar, he taught that subject at Nebraska and Harvard. Pound was sufficiently adept at Latin to translate Roman law into English for a sourcebook he used for those classes, he was said by Professor Joseph Beal to have "brought the spirit of Roman law to Harvard." Pound was the founder of the movement for "sociological jurisprudence", an influential critic of the U. S. Supreme Court's "liberty of contract" line of cases, symbolized by Lochner v. New York, one of the early leaders of the movement for American Legal Realism, which argued for a more pragmatic and public-interested interpretation of law and a focus on how the legal process occurred, as opposed to the arid legal formalism which prevailed in American jurisprudence at the time.
According to Pound, these jurisprudential movements advocated "the adjustment of principles and doctrines to the human conditions they are to govern rather than to assumed first principles". While Pound was dean, law school registration doubled, but his standards were so rigorous that one-third of those matriculated did not receive degrees. Among these were many of the great political innovators of the New Deal years. In 1929 President Herbert Hoover appointed Pound as one of the eleven primary members of the Wickersham Commission on issues relating to law enforcement, criminal activity, police brutality, Prohibition. During Roosevelt's first term, Pound supported the New Deal. In 1937, Pound turned against the New Deal and the legal realist movement altogether after Roosevelt proposed packing the federal courts and bringing independent agencies into the executive branch. Other factors contributing to this "lurking conservatism" within Pound included bitter battles with liberals on the Harvard law faculty, the death of his wife, a sharp exchange with Karl Llewellyn.
Pound, had for years been an outspoken advocate of these court and administrative reforms that Roosevelt proposed and it was acknowledged that he only became conservative because he saw an opportunity to gain attention after his Harvard colleagues had turned on his ideas of government reform after Roosevelt had proposed them. In 1937 Pound resigned as Dean of Harvard Law School to become a University Professor and soon became a leading critic of the legal realists, he proposed his ideas of government reform to Chinese leader Chiang Kai-shek. In 1934 Pound received an honorary degree from the University of Berlin, presented by the German Ambassador to the United States. Pound was among the famous American jurists to express a liking for Adolf Hitler. In the 1940s, Pound was favourably disposed to replacing John P. Higgins as a judge on the International Military Tribunal for the Far East, conducting a war crimes trial in Tokyo, though an appointment did not eventuate, he joined the faculty of UCLA School of Law in 1949, the year the law school opened, remained on the faculty until 1952.
In 1922 Roscoe Pound and Felix Frankfurter undertook a detailed quantitative study of crime reporting in Cleveland newspapers for the month of January 1919, using column inch counts. They found that in the first half of the month, the total amount of space given over to crime was 925 in, but in the second half, it leapt to 6642 in. That was in spite the fact that the number of crimes reported had increased only from 345 to 363, they concluded that although the city's much publicized "crime wave" was fictitious and manufactured by the press, the coverage had a real consequence for the administration of criminal justice. Because the public believed they were in the middle of a crime epidemic, they demanded an immediate response from the police and the city authorities; the agencies, wishing to retain public support, caring "more to sati
