Eugene A. Alexander, who practiced law in Baltimore for more than half a century, died of heart disease Saturday at Morningside House in Ellicott City. He was 91.
Born and raised in Frederick County, Mr. Alexander attended Mount St. Mary's College in Emmitsburg. He graduated from the University of Baltimore Law School in 1940, and passed the bar exam that year with the second-highest score. He embarked on a 55-year career that included trial work and estate law.
He once told his daughter Jane Noonan of Ellicott City, "There has never been an occasion in 50 years that I did not look forward to coming to work," she said yesterday.
