Morton King Lexow ~ A Life Remembered

Morton King Lexow of Suffern, N. Y., who was District Attorney of Rockland County from 1918 to 1930, died at the Allendale (N. J.) Nursing Home. He was 90 years old.

Mr. Lexow was the son of Clarence Lexow, the state senator who in the 1890's headed the so‐called Lexow Committee that brought to light the system of vice protection by the police in New York. His father also introduced the bill creating Greater New York in 1898.

A half‐century later, Mr. Lexow served on the committee for Greater New York's golden anniversary. The records of the Lexow Committee were presented by Mr. Lexow to the Museum of the City of New York.

He was a graduate of Princeton University, class of 1904, and the New York Law School. He established a law firm in Suffern under the name of Lexow & Jenkins. Mr. Lexow remained active as a lawyer until 1970.

For many years he was legal consultant for major utilities in the upstate area.

Two sisters, Caroline L. Babcock and Catherine Morton Call, survived him.
