American federal judge on the United States District Court for the District of Idaho.
Raised in Lewiston, McNichols was in the U.S. Navy during World War II, from 1942 to 1947. He attended the University of Idaho in Moscow and received an LL.B. from its College of Law in 1950. He was in private practice in Orofino in Clearwater County from 1950 to 1964.
On April 15, 1964, McNichols was nominated by President Lyndon B. Johnson to a seat on the U.S. District Court for the District of Idaho vacated by the retirement of Chase Clark. He was confirmed by the U.S. Senate on April 30 and received his commission on May 1, 1964. McNichols served as chief judge from 1971 to 1981, and assumed senior status on July 1, 1981, and served in that capacity for over four years, until his death.
His younger brother Robert McNichols (1922–1992) was also a federal judge, in Spokane, Washington. During Robert's investiture to the federal bench in January 1980, the elder brother swore the younger in.
McNichols suffered a heart attack at his Boise home on Christmas Day in 1985, and died at age 71 at St. Luke's Regional Medical Center in Boise.
