Medalie Boomed to Succeed Tuttle As U.S. Attorney

In the event that United States Attorney Charles H. Tuttle resigns to accept the Republican nomination for governor, his most likely successor, according to well-informed political circles, is George Z. Medalie, one of the best known Republican prosecutors in the city. Mr. Medalie, a former assistant district attorney of New York, came into national prominence a few years ago when he successfully prosecuted the former secretary of state, Mrs. Florence E. S. Knapp, and sent her to prison. He has been an active prosecutor for the New York Bar Association.
