Hon. Frederick L. Siddons
Mr. Siddons was born in London, in 1864, and has been a resident of
the District of Columbia since 1878. In 1892 he married Miss Harriet
Charles Van Auken, of Virginia. They have one daughter, Mary Elizabeth,
and one son, Frederick Philip Heyward.
He was admitted to the bar in 1887, and in 1890 organized the law
firm of Ralston & Siddons. Mr. Siddons has figured in a number of notable
court cases. He was associated with Alton B. Parker, former Democratic
candidate for the Presidency, for the defense in the Gompers-Mitchell-Mor-
rison contempt case. He was also engaged in the famous pious fund case,
the first Issue to be tried by The Hague International Court, in which the
United States won.
He is a piember of the District Bar Association, the American Society
of International Law, the Commercial Law League of America, and many
local civic and commercial bodies.
Mr. Siddons has for many years been known as a liberal and progres-
sive. As a citizen he has been untiring in good works, a student of social
conditions and an earnest worker for their betterment. He has served with
credit as a commissioner of the District of Columbia and was recently hon-
ored by the President by being nominated as associate justice of the Su-
preme Court of the District of Columbia.
It is safe to say that with his clear understanding of human nature,
and keen insight into motives and purposes, he will be an ideal judge, en-
abled to guide the course of causes on trial before him so as to work out
real and substantial justice. His gentle, kindly disposition, his well-known
impartial bearing, his keen sense of justice, well fit him to make one of
the best judges that has ever graced the bench in Washington.
