Benjamin Barr Lindsey was an American judge and social reformer based in Denver, Colorado during the Progressive Era. He obtained employment in a real-estate office in Denver, Colorado, where he studied law in his spare time. In despair over his slow progress in his law studies, he attempted suicide, but his gun misfired. In 1894, he entered the practice of law in Denver. In his work, he was often assisted by his wife Henrietta, whom he had married in 1914. He was appointed to a vacancy in the county court in 1900. Judge Lindsey appeared as himself in the film The Soul of Youth 1920, directed by William Desmond Taylor, and in Judge Ben Lindsey in the Juvenile Court 1921, the latter film made in the experimental Photokinema sound on disc process. In 1931, he ran for, and won election to a judgeship in the California Superior Court. He also continued his advocacy for children in the juvenile justice system. He died in Los Angeles of a heart attack, at age 73.
