Viewing Clark R. Fletcher (1885-1943).
During his thirty years of practice in Minneapolis, Clark Robinson Fletcher earned a reputation for an "almost genius for handling complicated" commercial litigation, especially accounting or trust suits. He died on January 20, 1943, at age fifty-seven. In memorial proceedings in Hennepin County District Court on February 27th, his partner, Leavitt R. Barker described him as a "really great lawyer. If he had a fault, it was that he worked too hard. But he loved it, Just as he loved to play hard. Half-way measures were not for him. . . [H]is memory will linger for us to honor and to cherish---linger to inspire us as we strive to be all that a lawyer ought to be, not only as a lawyer, but as a man."
