Clerk of Court Kaercher Davis became the first incumbent to be unseated in general elections twice (1934, 1954).
Larkin was a milk-route driver and farmer from Hopkins. Larkin's election spurred the legislature to put forth a constitutional amendment making this office appointed. The amendment was passed on the November 6, 1956 general election ballot and long-serving Deputy Clerk of Court Mae Sherman was appointed to the position by Governor Orville Freeman effective December 1, 1956. Larkin, who is in the midst of a four-year term, became Deputy Clerk of Court.
