A Republican, he served as a delegate to the Missouri State conventions in 1900, 1908, 1912, 1916, 1936, and 1940; and as a delegate to the Republican National Conventions in 1916 and 1936.

He was appointed United States Marshal for the eastern district of Missouri[1] on May 12, 1923, and served until March 1933. He resumed the practice of law afterward.
