Viewing William J. Quinn (1889-1932).
William J. Quinn graduated from the St. Paul College of Law in 1911, at the age of 22. Aside from a partnership in 1928-9, he "always preferred the individual way of practicing law." In court he was a "feared adversary" while outside he was active in the Democratic party. He was an ardent supporter of Governor Alfred E. Smith for president in the 1920s.
