Viewing Bion A. Dodge (1859-1934)
Bion A. Dodge practiced law in St. Paul from 1889 to 1898, when he was struck by gold fever. He moved to Alaska where he mined, practiced law--even served as U. S. Attorney--hunted, fished and, it seems, spent the best twenty years of his adventuresome life. In 1918, he returned to St. Paul to take care of his mother. He resumed practicing law. He died on March 18, 1934, and two weeks later a memorial was given for him by the Ramsey County Bar Association.
