Viewing John P. Galbraith (1866-1933).
John P. Galbraith graduated from the University of Minnesota Law School in 1891, practiced law in St. Paul and Grand Forks, served three terms in the North Dakota Legislature, and returned in 1901 to St. Paul where he worked in several private companies handling credit matters until 1920 when he resumed private practice. It was with this wealth of commercial experience that he was appointed a Bankruptcy Referee in December 1927, succeeding Gideon Ives. He died on March 30, 1933, after only five years on the bench. Two weeks later, the Ramsey County Bar Association presented a memorial to him in district court.
