Biographical / Historical
Emmett Edward Doherty was a student at GW and was active in the Sigma Chi Fraternity in 1920 and 1921. Although little else is known about him, including his graduation date, there is evidence in online court files from the late 1920s that he may have become an Assistant US Attorney in Los Angeles, California.
