Biography: 

The "United States Attorney" who is present during Judge Gowan's hearing on the case against Lucas and George is an outsider who "moved to Jefferson only after the administration changed eight years ago" (222). This probably makes him an appointee of President Franklin Roosevelt, though that is not said explicitly. He is described as both "angry-looking" (221) and "angry" (222). Secure in his local knowledge and authority, Judge Gowan ignores his one exasperated but uncompleted remark.
