Biography

Jesse S. Reeves, professor and chairman of the department of political science of the University of Michigan, was born January 27, 1872. He was student at Kenyon College in Ohio before graduating from Amherst College in 1891 with a B.S. He received his Ph.D. from Johns Hopkins University in 1894. He practiced law for a time before deciding on a career as an academic. He taught at Johns Hopkins (1905-06) and Dartmouth (1907-1910) before accepting a position as professor and chairman of the newly created department of political science at the University of Michigan in 1910. He held this position until his retirement in 1937. In 1931, he was appointed W.W. Cook professor of American institutions, which position he held until his automatic retirement from the faculty in February 1942.

Reeves was an authority on international law who was often called upon to serve on numerous commissions. For two years, beginning in 1925, he served as the American member of the Pan-American Commission of Jurists for the codification of international law. And in 1930, he was technical advisor to the American delegation to the Hague Conference for the Codification of International Law. Reeves was a member of various professional organizations and the author of books and articles in his area of expertise. Reeves died July 7, 1942.
