Viewing Arnold P. Rose, "The Bar of Lyon County" (1912).
Unlike most county histories published before the First World War, Arnold Rose did not include a separate chapter on the "bench and bar" in his history of Lyon County (1912). A dozen practicing lawyers were subscribers--that is, they helped finance the publication of the book--and in return had flattering self-portraits included in it. They were Thomas E. Davis, Bjorn B. Gislason, Fremont Sharpe Brown, Marvin E. Mathews, James H. Hall, Arch R. English, John Von Williams, George A. Schain, N. J. Robinson, Joseph V. Mathews, Ernest A. Michel and Duncan L. Kennedy.
