  JOHNBELL: It   is a delightful day to be here together with the Honorable
Marion T. Pope, previously Chief Judge on the Georgia Court of Appeals,
and Hugh  Brown McNatt, Georgia's great advocate for the rich and the
powerffil. This Interview is on behalf of the Georgia Legal History Foundation
for the Journal of Southem Legal Htory, a great scholarly journal. Judge
Pope, give us a brief background of where you were born, where you grew up,
and your early life before we move to your other expeniences.

   CHIEF JUDGE   POPE:   I was born in Thomaston, Upson County,
Georgia. I don't know why my father was there but he met my mother in
Griffin, Spalding County. My mother and father were both brunette, and I'm

Mrs. Pope, why are you crying? You have a fine looking baby boy. She said,
I know but he's red-headed. I had a head full of red hair, and I guess it was
this ancestral thing that jumped several generations.
  My  dad was Marion Thomas Pope, Sr., and I am Marion Thomas Pope,
Jr. He went by Tom because his father was Thomas also. My mother was
Hulett. I think she told me she was named after the doctor who delivered her,
a Dr. Hulett Irene Clark Pope. My mother raised me, and she was a very

whatever he thought we needed, but mother was the one who really is the
closest to me, my brother, Bobby, and my sister, Mary Ann. My youngest
