The American Bar Association records with appreciation and gratitude
a memorial to the life of Frank T. Boesel, of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. His
death on December 30, 1966, at the age of 90 years, ended a long career
which was notable for its contributions to the legal profession, the organized
bar, his community and to the welfare of the nation.
Frank T. Boesel was born in New Bremen, Ohio, on August 2, 1876. He
was a graduate of Ohio State University in 1896 and of the Harvard Law
School in 1899.
In addition to his active law practice, Mr. Boesel was a teacher of law in
the University of Wisconsin from 1911 to 1947, and during this period
practically every law student in the university took his course on Pleading.
Many appointments to positions of important public service recognized
his legal ability and good judgment. In 1929 he was a member of the Wis-
consin Supreme Court Advisory Committee on Rules of Pleading, Practice
and Procedure. In 1933 he was a Special Master of the United States Circuit
Court of Appeals in railroad reorganizations. In 1945 he was Compliance
Commissioner of the War Production Board.
Frank Boesel occupied many positions of trust and leadership in bar as-
sociations. He was President of the State Bar of Wisconsin in 1926. He
was President of the Milwaukee Bar Association in 1927-28. He was a
member of the Board of Governors of the American Bar Association from
1935 to 1938. He was a member of the American Law Institute. He repre-
sented the American Bar Association as a delegate to the first meeting of
the Inter-American Bar Association in Havana in 1941. In 1932 and in
1937 he represented the University of Wisconsin at International Con-
gresses of Law at The Hague.
Mr. Boesel's scholarship was recognized by membership in Phi Beta
Kappa and the Order of the Coif. He was an active member of Phi Delta
Phi legal fraternity and of various Masonic orders. He was a member of, and
leader in, numerous community and service organizations in Milwaukee.
Frank Boesel advocated a broad interpretation of the Constitution and
urged a spirit of social and economic liberalism on constitutional issues.
Frank T. Boesel married Ella H. Manegold in 1906; she died on August
4, 1952. He is survived by two sons, Charles M. Boesel and John P. Boesel,
and a daughter, Mrs. Marianna Ivins.
