About Walter Chandler

eponymous Chandler Act of 1938, which added the first comprehensive
corporate reorganization and individual debtor's wage-earner plan
proceedings to American bankruptcy law. These provisions of the
Chandler Act remained in effect for 40 years and provided the
foundation for both chapter 11 and chapter 13 of the current
Walter Chandler's Congressional Biography...
