Joseph H. Choate, Jr. (February 2, 1876 – January 19, 1968) chaired the Voluntary Committee of Lawyers, a group established in 1927 that promoted the repeal of prohibition. Upon repeal in 1933, President Franklin Roosevelt named Choate the first head of the Federal Alcohol Control Administration (FACA).


He married Cora Oliver, daughter of General Robert Shaw Oliver in 1903. They had four children. He died in 1968.[1]


One of Choate's very famous quotes was "You cannot live without lawyers, and certainly you cannot die without them."
