From Bismarck Tribune obituary 30 March 1988:

Fred A. Harvey was the first member of the Bismarck Police Department to attend the Federal Bureau of Investigation National Police Academy, in Washington, D.C., and was certified as a fingerprint expert. Mr. Harvey died March 29, 1988, in a Bismarck hospital at the age of 87. Services will be held at 11 a.m. Monday, at Church of St. Anne, with spring burial in St. Mary’s Cemetery.

Visitation will begin at 5 tonight at Nickisch-Ressler Funeral Home, where a rosary will be said at 7 p.m. Sunday.

Mr. Harvey was born Oct. 31, 1900, at Mountain View, Wyo., where he was raised and educated, graduating from Mountain View High School in 1918. He served in the U.S. Army during World War I, and came to Fort Lincoln at Bismarck in 1927. He married Maxine Kupitz, April 20, 1930, in Bismarck. He worked at Logan Grocery Store and for the WPA for two years before joining the Bismarck Police Department in 1937. After becoming the first Bismarck graduate of the FBI Academy in 1940, he returned to the Bismarck Police Department. He joined the FBI in 1942, and worked in Minneapolis, Des Moines, Iowa, and Milwaukee, Wis. He took a leave of absence in 1944 to take a position as police chief in Seward, Alaska, returning to the FBI in 1945, to become a resident agent at Bismarck, until retiring in 1970. Maxine died in 1980.

He is survived by three daughters, Mrs. N. J. (Patricia) Eysaldt, Wilmington, Del., Mrs. Kathleen Cowles, Silt, Colo., and Mrs. Donald (Nancy) Polasky, Bismarck; two sons, Frederick “Bob”, Bismarck, and Charles, Great Lakes, Ill.; two sisters, Mrs. Edith Van Vleet, Hudson, Wyo., and Mrs. Vera Davis, Evanston, Wyo.; 12 grandchildren; and nine great-grandchildren.
