Arizona Biographies





JOHN HENRY CAMPBELL, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of Arizona from March 17, 1905, until the beginning of statehood, was born in the State of Illinois in September, 1868, and is the son of William J. and Mill Smith Campbell. His early education was obtained in the public schools of Illinois, and he afterwards attended Columbian University, receiving therefrom in 1891 the degree of LL. B. and in 1892 that of LL. M. During the time he was working for these degrees he was employed in the Treasury Department at Washington, where he remained for six years. In 1894, however, having been admitted to the practice of law, he was appointed to a position in the Department of Justice, being made attorney in charge of pardons. This position he held until 1901, when he removed to Arizona, which he has made his permanent home. From 1902 to 1905 he served as Assistant United States Attorney for Arizona, which position he held until he became Associate Justice of the Supreme Court. Judge Campbell was married in Washington, D. C., April 15, 1890, to Miss Estella Freet, of that city. He is a Republican in politics, and one of the foremost men of the state in a professional and political sense, as well as a man whose judgment in all matters pertaining to the general or civic welfare is greatly relied upon, and whose opinion and advice on questions of the day are much sought after. He is a member of the order of Knights of Pythias and is a Past Grand Chancellor of the domain of Arizona.
