    • lawyer of Madison, Wis.

      He was born at Brookfield, Madison County, N. Y., and removed with his father to Utica, Dane County, Wis., in 1864. He attended school at Albion Academy and continued his studies at Milton College, and at the University of Wisconsin. For a time he was principal of the High School at Horicon, Wisconsin, but gave up teaching to study law, graduating from the law school of the University of Wisconsin in 1881. Immediately after gaining admission to the bar he took up the practice of his profession at Madison, where he has since resided. He organized the Dane County Abstract Association, and was its president for twelve years; became Court Commissioner in 1889, a position he was still holding in 1907. He was Public Administrator for six years, a member of Common Council for eight years, and a member of the Board of Education for two years. Is treasurer of Madison General Hospital, secretary of Madison Park Pleasure Drive Association, of which he was one of the incorporators, a life member and curator of State Historical Society, member of Wisconsin Academy of Science, Arts and Letters, and is prominently identified with many enterprises conducted for the benefit and advancement of his city and state. For many years he has been interested in genealogical research, and prepared the manuscript for somewhat more than half of the Brown Genealogy, published in 1907.
