Viewing Charles E. Callaghan (1863-1926).
In 1898, Charles Elwin Callaghan and George Granger formed a law firm that soon became one of the most successful in southwestern Minnesota. It dissolved in 1915, when Granger was appointed to the district court bench, a post he held only two years before resigning. Callaghan was then appointed to fill the vacancy; he was elected to a full term in 1918, and reelected in 1924. He died in office on August 13, 1926, at age seventy-three. The following year, a committee of the Wabasha County Bar presented a "sketch" of his life in district court.
