Edgar N. Eisenhower

Edgar N. Eisenhower (19 January 1889 – 12 July 1971) was a lawyer, and an older brother of President Dwight D. Eisenhower. He was born in Hope, Kansas and graduated from the University of Michigan in 1914.[1] He began practicing law in 1915 in Tacoma, Washington and was known as a “shoot from the hip ultraconservative.”[2]

According to his nephew John Eisenhower, Edgar Eisenhower “considered President (Franklin) Roosevelt a work of the devil,” and "tried to talk John out of a career in the military," saying that he "should forgo any ideas of becoming a ‘professional killer’ and go to law school at his expense, later to join his law office.'"[3]
