Flags At Half Mast For Judge Brown

KSCB News - February 9, 2012 8:17 am

Gov. Sam Brownback has ordered flags at
state buildings to be flown at half-staff Saturday to honor a
Kansan who had been the oldest sitting federal judge in U.S.
history.
U.S. District Judge Wesley Brown died Jan. 23 at an assisted
living center in Wichita at age 104. A memorial service for Brown
is scheduled for 11 a.m. Saturday, and Brownback ordered flags to
remain lowered from sunrise to sunset.
Brown was appointed as a federal district judge in 1962 by
then-President John F. Kennedy.
In 1979, Brown officially took senior status, a type of
semiretirement that allows federal judges to work with a full or
reduced case level. But he continued to carry a full workload for
decades.
