Vincent Walker Foster, Jr. (January 15, 1945 - July 20, 1993) was a Deputy White House Counsel during the first term of President Bill Clinton, and also a law partner and friend of Hillary Rodham Clinton. His death was ruled a suicide by multiple official investigations, but remains a subject of interest among conspiracy theorists.


Early life and education

Foster was born in Hope, Arkansas, to Alice Mae and Vincent W. Foster.[1] His father was in real estate sales,[2] and he had two sisters, Sheila and Sharon.[1] He was a childhood neighbor and friend of Bill Clinton for the first eight years of his life, until Clinton moved away. He graduated from Hope High School in 1963[1] as president of his class.[3]

Foster attended Davidson College, graduating in 1967.[1] His father wanted him to go into the family real estate business, but he chose law instead.[2]

After starting at Vanderbilt University Law School, he joined the Arkansas National Guard during the height of the Vietnam War.[2] In order to be closer to his guard responsibilities, he transferred to the University of Arkansas School of Law,[2] where he was managing editor of the law review[4] and received his Juris Doctor (J.D.) in 1971, graduating first in his class.[2] Additionally he scored the highest in his class on the Arkansas bar exam.[2][5]
