C. Tracey Stagg
Charles Tracey Stagg (December 16, 1878 – July 14, 1939) was an American lawyer, law professor and politician from New York.
He was born on December 16, 1878, in Elmira, Chemung County, New York. He graduated from Cornell Law School in 1902. He was admitted to the bar, and was confidential clerk of Walter Lloyd Smith, Presiding Justice of the Appellate Division (3rd Dept.), until 1904. Then he practiced law in Elmira, and later in Ithaca. In November 1908, he became instructor in procedure, and in April 1909 assistant professor of law, at Cornell Law School.
He committed suicide on July 14, 1939, in the woods of Newfield, New York, about eight miles from his home in Ithaca, by shooting a bullet in his head. In a note to his son Norman G. Stagg (later Tompkins County Judge), he complained about failing health and excessive work as a legislator.
