Wilbur Franklin Booth

Wilbur Franklin Booth (August 22, 1861 – July 7, 1944) was a United States federal judge.

Booth received an A.B. from Yale University in 1884, where he was a member of Skull and Bones[1]:14, and an LL.B. from Yale Law School in 1888. He was in private practice in Saint Paul and Minneapolis, Minnesota from 1888 to 1890, and with some interruption in Minneapolis alone until 1909. He was a district judge of Hennepin County, Minnesota from 1909 to 1914.

On May 2, 1914, Booth was nominated by President Woodrow Wilson to a seat on the United States District Court for the District of Minnesota vacated by Charles A. Willard. Booth was confirmed by the United States Senate on May 4, 1914, and received his commission the same day. On March 18, 1925, President Calvin Coolidge nominated Booth for elevation to a new seat on the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit created by 43 Stat. 1116. He was confirmed to this seat by the United States Senate on March 18, 1925, and received his commission the same day. He assumed senior status on January 1, 1932, serving in that capacity until his death, in 1944.
