A Tribute to the Honorable Julius H. Miner
Julius Howard Miner arrived in Chicago from Russia during his early childhood. He attended Kent College of Law, and received and LLB degree. He was admitted to the Illinois Bar in 1917.
Never satisfied that he had learned all that he could about the law, Judge Miner attended post-graduate classes at Northwestern University School of Law while presiding as a Cook County Circuit Court Judge. In 1945, he earned a Masters of Law from Northwestern.
In 1958, President Dwight Eisenhower appointed Judge Miner to the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. At the time of his death in 1963 Judge Miner was working on a Ph.D. thesis.
We are extremely grateful for the Mrs. Judith Miner and the entire Miner family for their continued support of this competition.
