Arizona Biographies





FREDERICK ARTHUR SUTTER, Judge of the Superior Court of Cochise Couny, was born in Marshall, Michigan, March 10, 1874, but lived on a farm in Nebraska until he was twenty years of age, and received his early education in that State. At that time he came to Arizona, located in Bisbee, and went to work in the mines, which work he continued until he had sufficient funds to enable him to attend school and prepare for the study of law. He then attended Shattuck Military School, at Faribault, Minnesota, from which he was graduated, and at once returned to Nebraska, where he entered the Law School of the State University, completed the course, and was graduated in June, 1902. In January of the next year he returned to Bisbee and opened an office to engage in private practice, and until his election as Judge of the County, made Bisbee his home. During his residence there he served as City Attorney for five years and also as Deputy District Attorney of Cochise County for several terms. He was a member of the twenty fifth Legislative Assembly, and during his term was the special champion of bills favoring the taxpayer and the laboring man. At the time of his election Judge Sutter was a member of the firm of Neale & Sutter, who had attained much prominence in the profession.

He is a member of Bisbee Lodges of Moose and Elks.

A thorough student of law, able, conscientious, and possessing excellent judgment, Judge Sutter during his first year on the bench has merited and won the recognition which is his due, and quite befitting his position as Judge of the Superior Court of the first county in the State. Judge Sutter was married in June, 1912, to Miss Edna McGavock. Their present home is at Tombstone, the county seat.
