Subject: Bailey Aldrich, Long-Serving Judge

Bailey Aldrich, a federal judge in Boston for almost half a century, died Wednesday at his home in Cambridge. He was 95.

Judge Aldrich was appointed to Federal District Court in Boston in 1954 and to the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit, also in Boston, in 1959. He was one of the longest-serving federal judges.

In acquitting Leon J. Kamin, a Harvard research assistant who refused to name Communist Party members, of contempt of Congress charges, Judge Aldrich ruled that Senator Joseph R. McCarthy's committee had overreached by researching private industry. The decision drew fire from Mr. McCarthy; Judge Aldrich never spoke of it publicly.

Born in Boston, he graduated from Harvard College and Harvard Law School and was a trial lawyer with Choate, Hall & Stewart.

He is survived by two sons, Jonathan, of Cape Elizabeth, Me., and David, of Brookline, Mass.; and four grandchildren.
