Julian Edwin Bailes Sr. (January 6, 1915 – February 1, 2010), was a judge in the Louisiana 10th Judicial District Court from 1960 until his retirement in 1972.

Early life and education[edit]

Born in Longview in Gregg County in east Texas, to Larry Thaddeus Bailes and the former Ethel Ballard, Bailes graduated from Natchitoches High School (now Natchitoches Central High School) and Louisiana Normal College (now Northwestern State University), both in Natchitoches, Louisiana, and the LSU School of Law in Baton Rouge.[1]

Military service[edit]

Julian Bailes enlisted in the United States Army on March 11, 1942 in Fort Lauderdale, FL. and was wounded and awarded two Purple Heart medals in 1944 for action at the Battle of the Bulge .[2]

Judicial career[edit]

Julian Bailes was elected as city judge of Natchitoches in 1948 and reelected in 1954. After six years on the district court, Bailes was elected as a judge for the 10th Judicial Circuit in 1960, on which he served until his retirement in 1972.[2] In 1976, he was the interim judge of the 19th Judicial District Court in Baton Rouge, a position he vacated when the Republican Douglas Gonzales was elected to the court.

Judge Bailes was preceded in death by his second wife, the former Nell Sandefur. He had five surviving children, Georgia Ann Bailes Scott and husband, Homer, of Natchitoches; Juliana Bailes Lipe and husband, Jim, of Shreveport; Sara Nell Bailes Williams and husband John Payne Williams Sr., of Natchitoches; Dr. Julian Edwin Bailes Jr. and wife Colleen, of Morgantown, West Virginia, and Emily Bailes Haines and husband, Paul, of Shreveport.[1]

Judge Bailes died of a stroke in Shreveport at the age of ninety-five and is interred at the American Cemetery in Natchitoches.[1]
