Davis, John W.

▪ American politician
in full  John William Davis  
born April 13, 1873, Clarksburg, W.Va., U.S.
died March 24, 1955, Charleston, S.C.
 conservative Democratic politician who was his party's unsuccessful candidate for the presidency of the United States in 1924.

      Davis was admitted to the Virginia bar in 1895 but returned to his birthplace two years later. In 1899 he was elected to the West Virginia House of Delegates and in 1910 to the U.S. House of Representatives. From 1913 to 1918 he served as solicitor general of the United States, and he was one of President Woodrow Wilson's advisers at the Paris Peace Conference following World War I (1919). He also served as ambassador to Great Britain (1918–21), after which he accepted a partnership in a New York law firm.

      At the Democratic National Convention of 1924, neither the supporters of New York governor Alfred E. Smith nor those of the more traditional William G. McAdoo would yield their votes in order to settle on a presidential candidate. After 102 ballots the party compromised by choosing Davis, who went down to overwhelming defeat that fall before Republican Calvin Coolidge.

      Returning to private law practice, Davis appeared in many cases before the U.S. Supreme Court. The capstone of his career was his victory in 1952, when the Supreme Court ruled that President Harry S. Truman (Truman, Harry S.) had exceeded his constitutional powers in seizing control of the nation's steel mills.
