Who was Milton S. Gould?

Milton S. Gould was a prominent New York City trial attorney. He graduated from Cornell Law School in 1933. Gould joined a staid "white shoe" law firm in New York City, which he found unpleasant, and quit to join a newly formed firm, Kaufman, Weitzman & Celler. The founders of that firm included Emanuel Celler, who later became a U.S. Congressman from Brooklyn, and Samuel H. Kaufman, who later served as a federal judge and presided over the first trial of Alger Hiss. Gould got his start as a trial lawyer in a trial where he was assisting Kaufman and the Judge in the case told the lead trial lawyer to sit down and let Gould try the case until Kaufman knew what the case was about.
