MARCUS TULLIUS HUN—SUPREME COURT REPORTER:
1874 - 1905.
Supreme Court Reporter Marcus Hun, born in Albany in 1845, was a graduate of Albany Academy, Union College, and Albany Law School. He practiced law with Russell Johnson and Learned Hand until 1902, when he formed a new firm with his son-in-law Lewis R. Parker. In 1874 he was appointed Supreme Court Reporter, a position he held for 32 years until his retirement in 1905. The resolution in 108 App Div xlv states: "The unvarying accuracy of his reports, and their complete fulfilment of the requirements of an ideal standard of excellence, afford abundant evidence of the sedulous and painstaking care which he has bestowed upon their preparation, as well as of the unusual skill and judgment which he has brought to the discharge of a difficult and onerous duty. His long-continued efforts for the improvement of the reporting system of this State constitute a distinguished public service which merits and has received the universal approval both of the bench and the bar."
