Viewing Burr D. Blair (1858-1940).
Burr Blair practiced law in Winona from 1900 to 1913, when he became employed at the Winona Savings Bank. He worked at that bank until 1928, when he retired. He was active in the affairs of the city, serving eight years on the school board, twenty-four years on the library board, and twelve years on the Board of Municipal Works. Although he had ceased practicing law, he was a member of the Winona County Bar Association, which presented a memorial to him in district court after his death on July 10, 1940, at age eighty-two.
