Charles Joseph Vogel began his career during World War I as a Sergeant in the American Expeditionary Force. After the war Vogel earned his law degree from the University of Minnesota Law School and in 1925 opened a practice in North Dakota. By 1940, Vogel attempted to run for Senator of North Dakota but failed to win the election. He returned to his practice until mid-1941 when he was appointed to the United States District Court for the District of North Dakota by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Vogel, while unsuccessful in his bid for Senate, established a lengthy career in the Judicial branch of the U.S. political system.
