William Jennings Bryan, c1907

In his autobiography Clarence Darrow wrote:

"Mr. Bryan was the logical man to prosecute the case. He had not been inside a courtroom for forty years, but that made no difference, for he did not represent a real case; he represented religion, and in this he was the idol of all Morondom."
