New York Times, Sat 9/15/1906
Judge R H Alvey Dead - Maryland Jurist ends his long career at Hagerstown.
Hagerstown, MD Sept 14, 1906 Richard H Alvey, a leading lawyer and jurist of Maryland, died here to-day. He had been Chief Judge of the Maryland State Court of Appeals and for eleven years Chief Justice of the Court of Appeals of the District of Columbia. Judge Alvey was born in St Mary's Co, MD on March 6, 1826. He began the practice of law in 1849. In 1850 he removed to Hagerstown, MD, where he formed a partnership with John Thompson Mason. He was urged to accept the nomination for the State Senate, and at the first election he received the same number of votes as his opponent. At the second vote he won by a majority of 40 votes. When the civil war broke out, Judge Alvey sympathized with the South, and at a public meeting at Hagerstown, when Lincoln was declared elected, he gave his views on the right of a State to secede. He was arrested and imprisioned to Fort Henry, Lafayette, and Warren. He was elected a member of the Constitutional Convention held in 1867 and was chosen Chief Judge of the Fourth Circuit of Maryland in the same year being re-elected in 1882. In January, 1896, he was appointed by President Cleveland one of the Venezuela Boundry Commissioners.
