The Shake Learning Resource Center is named after Curtis Grover Shake (1887-1978), Knox County native, Vincennes University alumnus and president, attorney, historian, author, and chief justice of the Indiana Supreme Court.  He also served as presiding judge for one of the U.S. Military Tribunals held in Nuremburg, Germany, after the Second World War.
