Summary:Lawyer and academic administrator Charles Duncan was born on October 31, 1924, in Washington, D.C. After graduating from Dartmouth College and earning his J.D. degree from Harvard Law School in 1950, Duncan began practicing law in New York. Upon his return to Washington, D.C., in 1953, Duncan worked as part of the team that wrote the second brief in the Brown v. Board of Education case. Duncan was then appointed corporation counsel for the District of Columbia in 1961. In 1974, Duncan became dean of Howard University's School of Law, a position he held until 1978. He returned to private practice that year, where he remained until 1994, when the U.S. Secretary of State sent him to the Hague for the Iran-U.S. Claims Tribunal. He remained there until 2000. He served on the boards of several companies, including Eastman Kodak, as well as many other civic organizations. Duncan passed away on May 4, 2004 at age 80.
