He was the first president of the Hennepin County Bar Association, serving 1919-1920. In November 1923, he was appointed U. S. Bankruptcy Referee for the Mankato district. He moved to Mankato, and served until 1946, when he resigned because of poor health. On October 19, 1957, he died in Minneapolis, aged eighty. The Mankato Daily Free Press carried his obituary two days later.
