Carter, Frank W. county judge of Vilas County, was born in Eagle River, Wis., Feb. 3, 1892, son of George L. and Genevieve E. (MCINTYRE) CARTER. He acquired his early education in the public schools of this city, being graduated from the Eagle River High School with the class of 1910, after which for one year he taught school in Vilas County. In 1911 he entered Marquette University at Milwaukee and was graduated from the law department with the class of 1914. In July of the same year he was admitted to the bar and in September opened a law office in Eagle River. His interest in public affairs and recognizeed ability led to his election in the fall of 1917 to the office of chairman of the town board, and while he was serving he was elected county judge, taking the office in 1920, so that he is now in the third year of the six-year term. He has the distinction of being the youngest county judge in the state of Wisconsin, but has proved himself equal to all the demands of the office and won the respect of the members of the bar. While the United States was engaged in the World War he took an active part in patriotic home work, being chairman of the legal advisory board of Vilas County, also of the organization of Four-minute Men. Judge CARTER was married March 6, 1913, to Mary Alida COOK of Eagle River, and he and his wife have been the parents of five children but have been deprived of two by death. The three survivors are Lyman G., Frank and Robert Lynn. Judge CARTER and his family are affiliated religiously with the Congregational Church.
