Obituary of Judge Clarence L. Ely from Jackson Sentinel-Press:
"Clarence L. Ely, son of Mr. and Mrs. B.D.Ely, was born in Maquoketa April 10, 1886, and had spent his entire life in his native city. He attended our high school, graduating with the class of 1903, after which he entered the law school of the State University of Iowa, completing his course with the class of 1908. In 1910, he received the appointment as secretary to the late Congressman I.W.Pepper, serving in this capacity until 1912, when he returned to this city, entering the law office of O.L.Johnson, where he laid the foundation of a very successful practice. In 1912 he was elected County Attorney, serving as such for three consecutive terms, and it was during his regime that he acquired the reputation as being one of the shrewdest and able criminal lawyers in the state."
