Viewing Arthur L. Jones (1870-1937).
An 1894 graduate of the University of Wisconsin Law School, Arthur Lincoln Jones practiced law in Wisconsin for several years; he then moved to Minneapolis and was admitted to the bar on February 14, 1898. After service in the Spanish-American War, he practiced in Minneapolis until 1902 when he became Deputy Chief and Attorney in the Sheriff's Department; in 1907 he resumed private practice. Aside from service as Court Commissioner, 1932-1935, he engaged in private practice until death on July 26, 1937, at age sixty-six. In a memorial service on February 6, 1938, Arthur C. Strauman, an associate, described him as "a credit to the legal profession, a good father to his family, and a loyal citizen to his country."
