Clarence Ellsworth Miles (spouse) — excerpt from unidentified book

“[J]udge Miles’ personality is unwittingly felt in every classroom and his well-chosen and scholarly discourse on any subject is a source of wisdom, appreciated and revered. Born in Lisbon, Maine, March 13, 1880, his life was one continual series of adventures. His memoirs carry us through the great Maine woods as a trapper, upon its open roads as a stage driver. Turning a page we see him as a telegraph operator, real estate dealer, secret service operator and justice of the peace. Leaving Maine, his worth was recognized by Uncle Sam and he has been employed in the capacity of assistant solicitor of the Department of Agriculture assigned to investigating the packers and stockyards administration. Judge Miles has an ambition to deliver opinions from the federal bench, and we’ll say they would state the law. Member of the Sons of the American Revolution and a Mason.”
