Clayton County Centennial Edition, July, 1936
We have no earlier recollection of Willis Drummond than when he formed a partnership with Reuben Noble at McGregor. He was a man of pleasing personality, some accomplishments, but more of a politician than the lawyer. In their court business, Reuben Noble having reached a state-wide reputation as a jury lawyer, overshadowed Willis Drummondís activities in the partnership. The office lawyer, studious and plodding, was not the ideal in the pioneer days.
Under the administration of U. S. Grant, Willis Drummond was appointed land commissioner and took up a residence in Washington. In the period of which we are writing, no other form investment had the appeal of the land, and the members of the early bar were all land owners and many of them practical farmers.
Possible due to the mistaken things we do is to picture men outside their environment. The versatile man is one who changes his environment and preserves his dominant characteristics.
