Biographical Sketch
Bismarck Tribune obituary, Tuesday December 5, 1939

Death ended the career of George Francis Dullam, prominent Bismarck attorney and leading Northwest Mason, at 4 a.m. Tuesday in a local hospital. Mr. Dullam, who would have been 72 on Dec. 23, had been ill in the hospital nearly five weeks. A complication of ailments caused death. Mr. Dullam leaves his widow, 710 Fifth St., a sister, Mrs. Ethel D. Knowles, Greeley, Colo., and several other relatives. The body was taken to the Webb chapel. Funeral arrangements will not be made until Mrs. Knowles’ arrival.

Mr. Dullam was born at Blaine, Ill., Dec. 23, 1867. His parents were Mr. and Mrs. William F. Dullam, of English descent. George F. Dullam was educated in the public schools of Boone County, Illinois and was graduated from Illinois State Normal University at Normal Ill. in 1889. In 1894 he was graduated from the University of Minnesota law school. He was admitted to the bar in June of that year. From 1894 to 1896 he held a clerical position in Minneapolis. In 1896 he opened a practice at Waterville, Minn., which he maintained until 1902, when he came to Bismarck.

In 1903 Mr. Dullam became a member of the law firm of Newton and Dullam. The firm of Newton, Dullam and Young was organized in 1911. Sixteen years later Mr. Dullam became head of the firm of Dullam, Young and Burke. Since 1928 the form has been known as Dullam and Young.

Mr. Dullam was a member of the North Dakota Bar Association and the American Bar Association. He was widely known as a leading Masonic worker. He was a Mason of the 33rd degree, highest honor Masonry can bestow. His civic activities included membership on the Bismarck school board for a time, direction of the sale of war savings stamps in Burleigh County during the World War, and participating in Red Cross activities during the World War.  Mr. Dullam was a charter member of the Bismarck Rotary Club and clerk of the vestry of St. George’s Episcopal Church for several years.

Mr. Dullam married Edna W. Dennis Oct. 5, 1904, in Minneapolis. Besides his widow and sister, he leaves these relatives: Mrs. Dorothy Lorton, Denver, niece; Mrs. Elizabeth Anderson, Fort Morgan, Colo., niece; Ben Close, Plainfield, N.J., nephew; and Rhea and Warren Wilkinson, San Diego; Francis and Carolyn Close, Plainfield; and Knowles Anderson, Fort Morgan, all grand nieces and nephews. A sister, Mrs. Ada M. Close, died several years ago.
