Letter: Kenai Peninsula Bar Association marks 50 years

Kenai Peninsula Bar Association marks 50 years

I believe it was 50 years ago this year that my former law partner, James E. Fisher, called the organization meeting together for the Kenai Peninsula Bar Association. Attendees included: Fisher, Bob Hahn and myself. We immediately began a campaign for a local Superior Court Judge. Jim Hanson was the first Kenai Superior Court judge. We demanded all applicants agree in writing they would move to the Kenai or else we would oppose them. Tom Wardell was our first DA and Bob Coats was our first Public Defender. Jess Nicholas followed Commissioner Stan Thompson as Magistrate. I was the first District Court Judge in Homer. Happy 50th birthday to the Kenai Peninsula Bar Association.
