Washington Law Review


The Judge who for nearly fifty years was one of the leading citizens of the State of Washington always looked the part. He was about six feet tall and weighed approximately 175 pounds. His hair was very dark and abundant until late middle age, when it grayed and thinned, but it never entirely disappeared. His brown eyes often carried a merry twinkle when he greeted a friend or engaged in conversation, and when he was aroused to anger they might "look a hole through" the object of his wrath. The nose was fine, straight, and well proportioned. A conventional mustache partially concealed a mouth of moderate proportions. His jaws and chin were not pronounced, but rather gave a fine symmetry to his face and head. His shoulders were square and his carriage erect. He had long, narrow hands and fingers, and feet of the same mold.
