Federal Judicial Service
Judge, U.S. District Court, District of Nebraska
Judge T.C. Munger and his family are described in The Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life, by Alice Schroeder, 2008, Ch. 23: "The Mungers had started in poverty, but by the latter part of the nineteenth century, T.C. Munger, Charlie's grandfather, a federal judge, had brought the family to prominence, welcome in every drawing room in Omaha -- rather than only at the back door, delivering groceries, like the Buffetts. Judge Munger, an iron disciplinarian, had forced the whole family to read Robinson Crusoe to absorb the book's portrayal of the conquest of nature through discipline. He was known for giving longer jury instructions than any judge in the middle west. He liked to lecture his relatives on the virtue of saving and the vices of gambling and saloons." Id. at p. 223.
