Neville H. Castle
N. H. CASTLE was born in San Francisco, February 15, 1863, and was â€¢ graduated from Yale College with the degree of B. A. in the class of '84.
He read law in the office ot Doyle, Galpin & Scripture, of San Francisco,
and was admitted to the bar in 1886. He practiced law in San Francisco and San
Jose, Cal., and came to Alaska in the spring of 1900. He became associated with
Laurier McKee, another Yale man and a clever young lawyer who has written an
interesting book entitled "The Land of Nome." They went to Council City and established an office, and Mr. Castle has remained faithfully at this post of duty ever
since. In addition to building a lucrative practice he has acquired interests in valuable
mining property. Mr. Castle's father is a prominent merchant of San Francisco, a
member of the firms of Castle Brothers and Macondray & Co.
I knew Mr. Castle years ago, when neither of us ever thought of going to Alaska.
I know that he is an educated gentleman, possessing a deep appreciation of ethics, a
broad knowledge of motive, charity for human frailty and a conception of justice which,
if possessed by every one, would elevate immeasurably the character of mankind.
