Charles Marion La Follette (February 27, 1898, New Albany, Indiana - June 27, 1974, Trenton, New Jersey) was an American lawyer and politician from Indiana.[1] His great-grandfather was William Heilman, who was in the United States House of Representatives from Indiana. He served as a Republican in the United States House of Representatives during the 1940s and took part in the post-World War II Nuremberg Trials.

During World War I, La Follette was in the United States Army from 1917 to 1919, where he served in the 38th Infantry Division of the 151st Infantry Regiment. After his military service, La Follette studied law at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, and was admitted to the Indiana State Bar Association in 1925. He set up practice in Evansville, Indiana. La Follette served as a Republican in the Indiana House of Representatives from 1927 to 1929, and in the United States House of Representatives from 1943 to 1947.[2] In 1947 he served as deputy chief of counsel for war crimes in the Nuremberg Trials. La Follette then served as the Director of Americans for Democratic Action from 1949 to 1950, and served on the Subversive Activities Control Board from 1950 to 1951.

He was a third cousin of Robert M. La Follette, Jr. and Philip La Follette.[3][4]

He died in Trenton, New Jersey on June 27, 1974. His body was cremated and the ashes interred at Locust Hill Cemetery in Evansville, Indiana.

In popular culture

Charles W. La Follette, a fictional alternate history counterpart of Charles M. La Follette, is an important figure in the final volumes of Harry Turtledoves alternate history the Southern Victory Series. He served as the Vice President of the United States on the Socialist Party from 1937 until 1942 when he ascended the presidency after President Al Smith was killed when the Powel House was damaged in a Confederate on the US de facto capital of Philadelphia. During his presidency, he would lead the United States and the Central Powers to victory in the Second Great War over the Confederate States and the Entente Powers. However, despite America and the Central Powers winning the war, La Follette and his running mate Jim Curley would loose the 1944 presidential election to Democratic candidate Thomas E. Dewey and his running mate Harry S. Truman.
