Viewing Lafayette French: "Bench and Bar of Mower County." (1911).
This chapter on the Mower County bench and bar appeared in a history of that county published in 1911. It contains short profiles of many lawyers and judges who practiced and served in the county from the 1870s to the time of publication. It also has short accounts of "notable cases," in which the author of the chapter, Lafayette French, a titan of the bar of southern Minnesota, frequently represented one party.
