Viewing Wallace Barton Douglas (1852-1930).
Wallace Barton Douglas graduated from the law department of the University of Michigan in 1875. Eight years later, he moved to Moorhead, where he served as city attorney, and later as attorney for Clay County. After two terms in the Minnesota House of Representatives, he was elected Attorney General, serving from 1899 to March 31, 1904, when he resigned to accept appointment to the state supreme court by Governor VanSant. His tenure was very short ---only nine months. He sought the endorsement of the Republican Party at its State Convention in July 1904, but lost Edwin Jaggard. He returned to private practice in St. Paul. He died on December 9, 1930.
