George B. Grigsby  

GEORGE B. GRIGSBY came to Nome in July, 1902, as Assistant United States Attorney under his father, Colonel Grigsby. He had charge of the United States Attorney's office in Nome two winters during his father's absence in the states, and was connected with the office until his father's resignation, and subsequently under District Attorney Hoyt.

He was born in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, December 2, 1874. He received his education in the University of South Dakota and read law in the office of Bailey & Vorhees. He was admitted to the bar in 1 896, and opened a law office in his native state. He practiced law for a while in Chicago, and when his father organized a regiment of Rough Riders during the war with Spain, he received a commission as first lieutenant in his father's command. In 1900 and 1901 he practiced law in Victor, Colorado.

Mr. Grigsby is now engaged in the practice of law in Nome.
