Mark Davis, a retired Louisville lawyer, practiced law with Frost Brown Todd, and its predecessor, Brown Todd & Heyburn. Davis admits an early interest in Bullitt beginning with a 1956 encounter one year before Bullitt’s death. After the author’s retirement forty-five years later, he was drawn to researching Bullitt’s papers in The Filson Historical Society. Davis hopes to revive interest in a man who he calls “one of the nation’s most gifted advocates, and also one of the most powerfully influential citizens
in Kentucky history.”

Mark Davis received his bachelor of arts and law degrees from Washington & Lee University. He and his wife live in Louisville.
