Longtime St. Louis County Attorney Alan Mitchell died in a tragic accident in Arizona in March. Al headed the county attorneys office for 28 years. In August 2014 the Alan Mitchell Law Library opened on the ground floor of the St. Louis County Courthouse in Duluth and was named in recognition of his dedicated service. Retired Assistant St. Louis County Attorney Vern Swanum worked for Mitchell for 25 years. He expected high standards of those who worked for him but even higher standards for himself Swanum said. He ran his office professionally fairly and totally without a political agenda. His goal was the pursuit of justice for all -- including the victims of crime the safety of the public and protecting the constitutional rights of the citizen accused. His primary concern was serving the best interests of the citizens of the county. If there is to be peace in the world There must be peace in the nations. If there is to be peace in the nations There must be peace in the cities. If there is to be peace in the cities There must be peace between neighbors. If there is to be peace between neighbors There must be peace in the home. If there is to be peace in the home There must be peace in the heart. -- Lao Tzu philosopher and poet of ancient China
