Biography of David Benshimol
Arizona Biographies





DAVID BENSHIMOL, attorney at law, as a result of the activity shown by him in behalf of the Progressive Party, has become one of the best known men in the state, and to him is due in large part the excellent showing made in the state, in Cochise County especially, by his party. Versatile, well read, possessing a pleasing personality and the ability to express himself clearly and forcibly, he conducted a great campaign in his vicinity for the party with which he affiliated himself after the Chicago convention; and despite the few years that he has been in Arizona, his influence was a decided factor in the showing made by the Bull Moose party. Mr. Benshimol was born in Boston in 1866. He is the son of Joshua and Caroline Nettlinger Benshimol, the former having been a merchant in his early days and later a banker. He was educated in Boston, was graduated from the University of Boston, and an honor man in his class. With his family he came to Douglas in 1908, and has since made it his home. He was admitted to practice in the Supreme Court in November of that year and has since built up a lucrative practice, his mastery of the Spanish language making him especially well fitted for practice in Southern Arizona, while his twelve years practice in the Boston courts and his training, particularly as a corporation lawyear, have stood him in good stead. Mr. Benshimol is fast making his way to the front ranks of Arizona attorneys. He has long been a member of the Masons and Odd Fellows, and has become well known in the local lodges. In 1891 Mr. Benshimol was married to Miss Edith E. Tanner, of linneapolis, Minn.
