    Judge Claiborne, Political, Civil Leader, 90, Dead

    Veteran Jurist, Grandson of Governor, Long a Leader in State's Life

    ----------

    Judge Charles Ferdinand Claiborne, 90 years old, grandson of Louisiana's first American governor and prominent in his own right in the state's political, civic and social life, died art 9 a.m. Tuesday at his home, 905 Esplanade avenue.

    Funeral services for Judge Claiborne, who served for 15 years as judge of the court of appeal of Orleans parish, will be held at 10:30 a.m. today at the residence, with religious rites at St. Louis Cathedral and interment in Metairie cemetery.

    Pallbearers will be Charles de Balathier Claiborne, Jr., Martin Duralde Claiborne, Jr., Howard Perrillat, M. Levering Matthews, Roger Arnauld and Robert A. Soniat.

    Two daughters, Mrs. Louis Perrillat and Mrs. Martin L. Matthews, one son, M. Duralde Claiborne, and 11 grandchildren survive the former jurist. Another son, Charles de B. Claiborne, banker and social leader, died in March, 1936.

    The Orleans parish court of appeal will be closed today in deference to the memory of the judge.

    Known for his kindly courtesy, fairmindedness and good humor, Judge Claiborne was equally prominent for more than half a century in the life of New Orleans.

    Born here February 2, 1848, the son of William C. C. Claiborne, a banker, and the former Miss Louise de Balathier, in an era in which New Orleans was one of the foremost cities in the country, young Charles F. Claiborne saw the city topple under the ruin of war and reconstruction. He was his family resources destroyed by the telling years of devastation to the South, and he began his life with little influence and no money to aid him.

    He attended the Christian Brothers school, and the University of Louisiana at Common and Baronne streets. He was graduated with high honors and entered the law offices of Chief Justice Bermudez of Louisiana. In 1869 he was admitted to the bar at the age of 21.

    He took part in the battle of September 14, 1874, when the White League finally wrested liberty from the Metropolitan police. He served with Gulbet's battery.

    A little more than year later, on December 23, he married Miss Amelie Sonlat du Fossat.

    Having become successful in law, Judge Claiborne then turned to politics. He early identified himself with progressive movements, and was always an advocate of good government.

    He served on the city council from 1888 to 1892, and from 1896 to 1900. During the latter term, Judge Claiborne realized the necessity of a new sewerage system in the city. He discussed the proposal with other members of the council, and he is credited with developing the plan which eventually resulted in the creation of the sewerage and water board.

    In 1912, Judge Claiborne ran against the late Martin Berhman in the mayoralty campaign but was defeated. In 1913, Governor Luther Hall appointed him a judge of the court of appeals. He retired on December 31, 1928.

    In 1921, he served as a delegate to the Louisiana Constitutional Convention, which drafted the present state constitution.

    Judge Claiborne was a past president of the board of directors of the New Orleans Public Library, and at the time of his death was honorary president of the board of directors of the Isaac Delgado Museum of Art and an honorary member of the board of administrators of the City Park Improvement Association.
