Early life

His maternal grandparents were Gladys Livingston Mills (1883–1970), a socialite, thoroughbred racehorse owner and breeder who formed Wheatley Stable with her brother Ogden L.

He graduated from the Gilman School and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.[9][10] He later received his J.D. from the University of Maryland School of Law.[9][10]
