Viewing Samuel J. Levy (1881-1958).
A graduate of the University of Minnesota College of Law in 1901, twenty-year-old Samuel Julian Levy had to wait a year to be admitted to the bar. He soon became one of the earliest labor lawyers in the state, representing management. In the 1930s he represented The Citizen's Alliance and became embroiled in the truck drivers' strikes in Minneapolis. Due to ill health he retired in 1945. He died on January 4, 1958, at age seventy-six. In memorial proceedings for the Hennepin County Bar Association later that year, his son, also a lawyer, recalled that his father "was a pioneer of many fields of labor law in the state of Minnesota at the time when the subject was still new and relatively unexplored."
