Funeral services for Joseph Morton Logan, 85, one of the 12 original bank examiners in the United States, who died Monday, will be conducted at 1 p.m. tomorrow in Utter McKinley-Strothers Mortuary, interment following in Forest Lawn Memorial-Park.

Born in LaGrange, Ga., Mr. Logan began his career as a messenger boy for the Ft. Worth National Bank in 1883. He emerged as a national bank examiner in 1901 and subsequently was appointed chief national bank examiner by President Wilson.

Mr. Logan was a life member of Knights Templar and a 32nd Degree Mason life member. In his hobby as magician he was a member of the Society of American Magicians and a participant in the Los Angeles chapter of the society.

He leaves his widow Argene and a son Rossington M Logan, of Los Angeles and a daughter, Mrs. L. E. Thorne of Port Arthur, Tex.

My grandmother called him "Uncle Morton" - she probably loved his magic tricks!

My great great uncle.
