[Identification of item], Mac Swinford Collection, 1932-1975, 96M4, Special Collections, University of Kentucky Libraries, Lexington. Mac Swinford was born on December 22, 1899 in Cynthiana Kentucky. Upon graduating from Cynthiana High School in 1919 he attended the University of Virginia. He began law practice with his father, M. C. Swinford, after attaining his law degree in 1925. Like his father, Swinford served as a Kentucky State Representative from Harrison County in the Kentucky General Assembly from 1926 to 1928. He was appointed United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Kentucky in 1933 and was named United States Judge for the Eastern and Western Districts of Kentucky by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1937. In 1963 he became chief judge of the Eastern District of Kentucky. He stepped down in 1969 although he continued to hear cases in the Eastern District until his death on February 3, 1975.  Swinford married Minnie Benton Peterson and was the father of five children, Mary Jouett (Judy) Swinford Reed, John McKee Swinford, who also served as state representative, Sarah Hanson Swinford Kinney, Alice Jane Swinford Kolbe, Ann Gregg Swinford Dunn. He enjoyed travel and literature, traveling extensively and forming a literary group called the Inquisitor's Club. He was also an avid fox hunter. Swinford's 1963 book, Kentucky Lawyer, presented a humorous take on the state's lawyers and courtroom stories. Swinford was active in the Cynthiana Presbyterian Church, serving as elder emeritus and teaching Sunday school classes for 38 years. Described as "an old-fashioned gentleman" who "never wanted to be anything but a lawyer," Swinford's 38-year judicial career was one of the longest of any federal judge.
