http://www.rawnjournals.com/papers/history_of_dauphin_county_courts#judges

GEORGE KUNKEL was elected over Judge Jacobs in the most vigorous political campaign ever waged in Dauphin County up to that time. Judge Kunkel took office in January 1904. He was reelected and served until his death in June 1920. He had been a former member of the legislature and District Attorney. Judge Kunkel was a great orator and a keen student of the law. He could express the law in choice but simple and terse language. It was said of him that he could condense in one sentence the phosphorescence of a page. In the case of Joseph M. Huston, the architect who designed the State Capitol and was convicted of cheating and defrauding the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania with respect to the furnishings of that building, Judge Kunkel wrote a seven page opinion refusing a new trial. The Superior Court in affirming Judge Kunkels decision, wrote a thirty-nine page opinion. Trial of this case consumed many weeks. During his term many important cases affecting state taxation and the administrative affairs of the state government were decided, including the Capitol Graft cases, to which reference will later be made. Judge Kunkel was held in high esteem, not only by the members of his own bar, but by the bar of the entire state. His son, George Kunkel, Jr., is a member of the Dauphin County Bar, a County Commissioner and a former member of the State Senate.  

This link shows when he made his bid for the State Supreme Court.  http://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=1126&dat=19200401&id=_qFRAAAAIBAJ&sjid=B2gDAAAAIBAJ&pg=3088,4711594

Arthur Emanuel Nelson (May 10, 1892 April 11, 1955) was an American lawyer and politician.

He graduated from Macalester College in 1912 and William Mitchell College of Law (then the St. Paul College of Law) in 1915.[1] He also served briefly in the U.S. Army from August to November 1918.

Jesse Unruh for Governor Flasher
Item #: NEW-0013037

Click image to enlarge
Good condition.

This info was taken from a New York Times article upon his death.

Jesse M. Unruh, a flamboyant Democratic politician who for a time wielded national influence from his base in California government, died of cancer Tuesday night at his home in Marina del Rey, Calif. He was 64 years old.

From an impoverished childhood in West Texas, Mr. Unruh rose to prominence in the California Assembly, of which he was Speaker from 1961 to 1968. A blunt-speaking virtuoso of backroom politics, Mr. Unruh earned a reputation as the one of the most influential state legislators in the land.

In his heyday he was second only to the Governor in power in the state. He was credited with molding the State Legislature into a well-staffed, full-time body that some political scientists described as a model.'
