Re: Is there a Lawyer in the house?
- I suggest you try and contact the American Bar Association. If they
have kept their records for any length of time you could ask if he
was registered and if so what locailty he practiced. You then might
contact the local bar association and see if he was registered in
that area. This might help you locate the history. To the best of my
knowledge I am not sure that a bad temper was grounds for being
disbarred. It well could have been earlier in the century but 1938 is
not that old.
