Viewing Lycurgus R. Moyer: "Courts and Lawyers of Chippewa County." (1916)
Lycurgus R. Moyer, the author of this article, served as probate judge in Chippewa County for two decades. It is based on his review of court records as well as his personal recollections. He begins with a paragraph about himself, then describes early court sessions, before concluding with several pages of short sketches of lawyers who practiced in the county from the 1870s to 1916. This article appeared in the first volume of a two volume history of Chippewa and Lac qui Parle Counties published in 1916, and edited by Moyer and Ole G. Dale. In 1917, Moyer died. He was 68 years old.
