Curtiss' service as court reporter in the 13th Judicial Circuit. Curtiss, a Traverse City resident for 35 years, had been brought to Boyne City from the courthouse at Charlevoix under the pretext of taking the deposition of a witness. In a manner typical of his many years of diligent service, he con- sented and arrived at Boyne City at p.m. in a blinding snow- storm to find that the "witness" had suddenly disappeared. The Charlevoix county prosecutor, Har- vey Varnum, then took Curtiss to the Dilworth where his son. Dan O. Curtiss. nnd approximately 30 others were waiting. Claude, more commonly known as Deke. was regarded as a serious by his father, who dubbed him Deacon. The nickname stuck during his high school days in Ludingtnn, and later was shorten- ed to Deke. a name which he has maintained since. Deke Curtiss represents the sec- ond of three generations of court reporters in Michi- gan. His father, Claude 51. Curtiss. was court reporter in the 19th Ju- dicial Circuit, including Lake. Man- istce and Oscnolu. counties, during the years 1014 to 1033. His son. Dan 0. Curtiss. has. since been court reporter in the 2Sth circuit, including Eenzie. Kalknska. Slissaukoe and Wexford counties. Circuit Judge Charles L. Brown acted as spokesman for the group in presenting a gift of matched luggage. Deke Curtiss, whose youthful appearance belies his age and experience as a court reporter, accepted the gift with thanks and commented that there were no longer any attorneys practicing in the circuit who were practicing here at the time when he com- menced service. Deke then amused the group by recalling some of his unusual experiences over the past 35 years. The court reporter at the pres- ent time covers many miles within tho circuit, either by car or in Judge Brown's airplane. However, Deke informed the group, travel arrangements were far different in the past. In tho early 1030's a court term in tho far distant city of Eellaire was an event which necessitated considerable advance planning. The judge, the court re- porter, and the attorneys would travel to Beliaire, usually by train, would register in the hotel, and would remain there until the court term was completed. END!
