Birth: Oct. 1, 1905
Death: Feb. 4, 1989

An obituary appeared in the Washington Post over several days in Feb. of 1989 as did an article detailing the life of judge Mitchell. Here are some excerpts from them:

He was a lifelong resident of the La Plata/Port Tobacco area in Charles county, Md. Like his father, Mitchell was a judge, a lawyer, a newspaper owner and journalist. What set him apart was that during World War II, he was also a Major in the U.S. Army serving in the JAG office. Towards the wars end, his unit worked to recover many valuable artworks stolen by enemy forces over the years.

Judge Mitchell was noted for his love of the land and was also known for the roses he grew and developed. He was a member of the county Farm Bureau and chapter of the American Cancer Society.

Although he lived in La Plata, he died at the family home in Port Tobacco just west of town on Md Rt. 6, a town considered very historic not just for Charles county but also at the state and national levels as well, going all the way back to the days before the U.S. was created.
