Viewing Francis M. Crosby: "Bench and Bar of Dakota County." (1910)
Anecdotes about early court cases, accounts of early court sessions and profiles of the judges who served in Dakota County from territorial days to 1910 are included in this article, which appeared first in a two volume history of Dakota and Goodhue Counties. The longest profile is that of District Court Judge Francis M. Crosby. Though the author of this article is not listed, it almost certainly was written by or with the assistance of Judge Crosby, who is listed as one of the "contributors and revisers" on the title pages of the books.
