James Hemenway Littlepage, 79, a longtime lawyer in Washington and Northern Virginia who had specialized in patent, trademark and copyright law, died May 28 at his home in Arlington after a heart attack.

Mr. Little page was a native of Washington and a graduate of the College of William and Mary. He attended Harvard University law school and received his law degree from George Washington University in 1936.

He then engaged in the private practice of law here until entering the Navy during World War II.

From 1944 to 1953, he served with the Navy as a lawyer an in the Office of Naval Intelligence. He also had done work involving the Manhattan Project. He left active duty as a Lieutenant.

He then resumed his private law practice, first in Washington and finally in Crystal City.

He was a partner in the firm of Littlepage & Webner at the time of his death.

Mr. Littlepage was the recipient of an award from the Patent Law Association. His hobbies included sailing on the Chesapeake Bay.

His marriage to Gertrude Hendricks (Sherman) Littlepage - on July 18, 1936 - ended in divorce.

Survivors include his wife of 32 years, Mabel Griffith Littlepage of Arlington; two daughters by his first marriage, Judith L Sawyer of Charleston, S.C., and Cecilia Littlepage of Berkeley, Calif., and two grandchildren.

His father, Thomas Price Littlepage, was associated with Senator James A. Hemenway, both representing the State of Indiana. This would explain the honorary middle name for James. Source: The Washington Post, December 14, 1909, page 4.
