Viewing George M. Luethge (1887-1929).
Following twenty-three year old George Luethge's admission to the bar on June 16, 1911, he was appointed an Assistant U. S. Attorney---thereby perhaps setting a record. He held that post for several years, then moved briefly to the clerk's office before becoming secretary to Ramsey County Probate Judge Edmund Bazille. He served in the Engineer Corps during the war, and was discharged a Master Engineer. Restless upon returning to civilian life, he held a succession of jobs, including a brief partnership with Michael Kinkead in the early 1920s. He was a sole practitioner when he died on December 4, 1929, at age forty-two. In his "obituary" delivered to the district court in April of the following year, the Ramsey County Bar Association Memorial Committee, which included his former partner, noted, "He had just begun."
