Marquette Prosecutor Longest Serving in Michigan History
The Mining Journal has a feature on Marquette County Prosecutor Gary Walker. Walker's 31 years is the longest tenure since Michigan was made a state in 1837. Walker, who was fascinated by the books (Anatomy of a Murder, Trout Madness) of Michigan Supreme Court justice and writer John Voelker (aka Robert Traver) took a position as assistant prosecutor in 1972 and was made prosecutor in 1974. Walker & Voelker enjoyed a friendship, fly fishing and talking regularly.
