St. Louis County

PROCTOR, a city in sections 3, 10, and 15 of Midway Township, incorporated as a village on November 6, 1894, commemorates James Proctor Knott of Kentucky, before mentioned for his humorous speech in Congress in 1871, ridiculing Duluth, but really aiding the young city much by its advertisement. He was born near Lebanon, Ky., August 29, 1830; was a representative in Congress, 1867-71 and 1877-83; governor of Kentucky, 1883-87; professor of civics and law in Center College, Danville, Ky., 1892-1901; and died at Lebanon, Ky., June 18, 1911. The village's post office was established as Proctorknott from 1894 to 1904, changing to Proctor, 1904-43, and then becoming a branch of the Duluth postal service.
