He was the youngest school commissioner in the State. In 1892 Mr. Dudley entered the office of Rogers, Locke & Milburn, one of the leading law firms of Buffalo, and in October, 1894, he was admitted to the bar. The same year he was elected clerk of the Board of Supervisors of Erie County, and was twice re-elected without opposition, serving until he resigned in September, 1897, to accept the appointment of assistant United States district attorney for the Northern district of New York. He was a delegate to the National Republican Convention at St. Louis in 1896. In 1895 he formed a copartnership with Milford W. Childs, son of Justice Henry A.
