Death Takes Ex-U.S. Judge
George Alexander Served in Alaska
Judge George F. Alexander, 66, who resigned from the first federal district court in Alaska last year because of ill health, died Sunday in St. Vincent's hospital. Prior to his judicial appointment in 1933 he had practiced law in Portland since 1912. During World War I he served as federal marshal for Oregon under appointment by then President Woodrow Wilson.
Court Rules Prepared
Judge Alexander was born in Gallatin, Mo. He took his law degree from the University of Missouri and later became city attorney for Gallatin, where he served five years. Serving longer in Alaska than any other federal judge, he had the distinction of preparing the uniform court rules for the territory's four federal districts. His father was the late Joshua W. Alexander, ex-Missouri congressman and secretary of commerce under President Wilson.
Judge Alexander was a member of Sigma Chi fraternity; Friendship lodge, AF&AM; Al Kader temple of the Shrine; a former president of the Juneau, Alaska, Shrine club; a Scottish Rite Mason and a member of the Portland and Juneau Elks' clubs. He leaves his widow, Lola Mae, 3421 N. E. Morrison street; two daughters, Miss Jane Alexander and Mrs. Dean Sherman, Portland; three sisters, Mrs. Julia J. Jenner, Bethesda, Md., and Mrs. Francis Ficklin and Miss Rowena Alexander, both of King City, Mo., and two brothers, Preston Carter Alexander, Bethesda, and Lawrence W. Alexander, Gallatin. Funeral arrangements are in the care of the Colonial mortuary.
