Charles Warren (1868, Boston, Massachusetts – August 16, 1954, Washington, D.C.) was a legal scholar, and the author of the book The Supreme Court in United States History (1922), which won the Pulitzer Prize for History in 1923.
Warren was graduated from Harvard University in 1889, and also was a graduate of Harvard Law School. He received his doctor of laws degree from Columbia University in 1933. He lectured at the University of Rochester, Boston University School of Law, Northwestern University School of Law, Johns Hopkins University, the University of Virginia, the University of Chicago, and several others.
In 1894, he founded the Immigration Restriction League with his fellow Harvard graduates, Prescott F. Hall and Robert DeCourcy Ward. The organization promoted the exclusion of the so-called new immigrants because of their allegedly inferior "racial qualities".
He married Annie Louise Bliss in 1904, and they celebrated their fiftieth anniversary before his death.
