Biography of E. W. Britt
Lake County, CA Biographies





BRITT, E. W. Was born in Cass County, Missouri, December 25, 1855. He received his education at the North Missouri State Normal School, and at the Missouri University at Columbia. In December, 1877, at the age of twenty two, he began the study of law at Harrisonville, the county seat of his native county, in the office of Messrs. Wooldridge & Daniel, and was admitted to the bar of the Supreme Court of Missouri in April, 1878. In the same month he came to California, and to Lake County in May following. Here he entered into partnership with Hon. S. K. Welch, where he has since been engaged in the practice of his profession. Mr. Britt is an exceptionally close student, and by strict attention to his work in hand has built for himself a reputation that is second to none in Lake County. A very prominent attorney once remarked to us that Mr. Britt came the nearest to being a natural born lawyer of any man he had ever met, and we are sure that he but stated a truth which is observed by all who are brought into contact with him.
