Elihu Root (1845-1937) was an American lawyer and statesman and the 1912 recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize. He was the prototype of the 20th century "wise man," who shuttled between high-level government positions in Washington, D.C. and private- sector legal practice in New York City. In 1867, he graduated from the New York University School of Law. He went into private practice as a lawyer. Root was appointed U. S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York by President Chester A. Arthur. He was a member of the Union League Club of New York and twice served as its president, 1898-99, and again from 1915-16. He served as the United States Secretary of War 1899-1904 under William McKinley and Theodore Roosevelt. He reformed the organization of the United States Military.
