Biographical Note

James W. Trimble was born in Osage (Carroll County), one of ten children of M. Allen and Anna Trimble. After graduation from Green Forest high school in 1913, Trimble enrolled at the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville (Washington County) and graduated in 1917 with degrees in education and history. Trimble taught school in Texarkana and then joined the army during World War I and trained as an officer at Camp Pike (Faulkner County). After the war he was principal at Osage and then Pleasant Ridge schools (Carroll County). Trimble began his political career in 1920 by running for and winning the position of Carroll County Clerk. In 1922, Trimble married Ruth Maples of Berryville and a year later they had twins, James Kerry and Martha Carol (1923-1925). Trimble was next elected Carroll County's Tax Collector in 1924, admitted to the bar, and then served four terms as Prosecuting Attorney for the Fourth Judicial district in Arkansas. He was elected circuit judge in 1938, earning him the nickname "Judge" which he carried the rest of his life. Six years later he successfully campaigned for J.W. Fulbright's vacated seat in the House of Representatives. Trimble served as Congressman from the third district for twenty-two years, until his reelection defeat in 1966.

As Congressman, Trimble helped place new post offices in Fayetteville, Springdale, and Rogers. He was also responsible for promoting development of Pea Ridge National Military Park, rural electrification, dams and reservoirs along the White River, Beaver Lake, and other waterways in Northwest Arkansas, and for bringing millions of dollars in federal money to the area. Trimble accomplished much by being a member of the Rules Committee, one of the most powerful groups in the House.
