Howard Sommer

interviewed 16 July 1976
Judge Howard Sommer (born 1901) finished law school in 1922 and came to practice in Crawfordsville where he was judge of the Montgomery County Circuit Court for more than 30 years. He reminds us that anyone who worked at the courthouse back then got admitted to the bar ("They didn't have to have any particular qualifications!")
