    In 1933, together with many of his youthful Harvard Law School classmates, Thomas H. Eliot went to Washington, becoming assistant solicitor of the Department of Labor under Frances Perkins. She appointed Mr. Eliot as counsel for the committee which drafted the Social Security bill. After serving as general counsel for the Social Security Board, he returned to Massachusetts, taught at Harvard, was elected to Congress, and in 1952 joined the faculty of Washington University in St. Louis.
