Viewing Daniel H. Dustin - U. S. Attorney (1854).
Daniel Dustin served as United States Attorney for Minnesota Territory in 1853-1854. Little is know about his background, other than that he was a native New Yorker. In early July 1854, he suddenly died. The Daily Pioneer newspaper published his obituary, a tribute from a local fraternal society, and resolutions drafted and adopted by about a half dozen lawyers who met in the chambers of Justice Moses Sherburne. This appears to be the first bar memorial in Minnesota.
