Viewing George T. Halbert (1864-1943).
George T. Halbert settled in Minneapolis in the late 1880s, read law under Alexander T. Ankeny, and was admitted to the bar on June 8, 1887, at the age of twenty-two. He practiced in Minneapolis for most of the next fifty years, concentrating on real estate and insurance law. He died on April 11, 1943, at age seventy-eight. In memorial proceedings on March 21st of the following year, William T. Cole described him as a chess aficionado, active in his church, interested in public affairs---in short, "a good citizen."
