S. J. Elden

Elden Assistant City Attorney

S. J. Elden, 32-year-old lawyer, is Ann Arbor's new assistant city attorney.

Elden's appointment was approved last night in a resolution passed by the City Council. He was appointed to the $3,600-a-year, part-time position by City Attorney Jacob F. Fahrner, jr.

Elden was present at the council meeting last night, filling in for Fahrner who is on vacation.

Elden's duties normally will consist primarily of prosecuting city ordinance violations in municipal court.

He stepped into a post vacated only last month by Fahrner, who was advanced to the post of city attorney. Fahrner succeeded William M. Laird, who retired in June after more than 25 years as city attorney.

Elden, who is active in Boy Scout work, has practiced law in Ann Arbor since obtaining his law degree in 1950 from Wayne University. He was born and raised in Detroit.

The new assistant city attorney is married and has a two-year-old daughter, Nancy Robin. The family lives at 1210 Creal Crescent.
