Viewing Frederick William Zollman (1860-1933).
The forty-six years Frederick William Zollman practiced law in St Paul--from 1887 to 1933--could be divided into several chapters. For the first decade, he seems to have had a general practice; from 1897 to 1901, he was an Assistant Ramsey County Attorney and compiled the "special laws" pertaining to the county into a booklet, which still served the profession three decades later; next, he represented the Minnesota Brewers' Association until the Prohibition Amendment was ratified in January 1919; and in the last chapter, he represented insurance companies defending suits arising from accidents involving "motor driven vehicles." Always interested in public affairs, he became active in state and local organizations advocating stiffer qualifications for automobile drivers. He died, unexpectedly, on April 10, 1933, and five days later, the Ramsey County Bar Association presented a Memorial to him in District Court.
