Bryson, who as a member of the law firm of Swift & Bryson, of North English, is closely identified with much of the important litigation of Iowa county, was born upon a farm in Polk township, Benton county, this state, on the t6th of November, 1880. His parents were both born in this country, but were of Irish descent.

Upon completing the course there he entered the State University of Iowa, which conferred upon him the Bachelor of Arts degree in 1908. He studied law both at the University of Iowa and in the offices of J. L. Swift and in 1910 to was duly admitted to the bar. He practiced at Vinton, Iowa, until 1912, when he removed to North English and formed a partnership with his former preceptor, J. L. Swift, under the firm name of Swift & Bryson. The confidence which his fellow citizens have in his professional attainments and his integrity was demonstrated in the fall of 1914, when he was elected county attorney on the republican ticket. He is not only well versed in the law but he has a clearness of insight that, joined with the power of logical reasoning, enables him to present his cases effectively.

Mr. Bryson believes firmly in the wisdom of the principles of the republican party and is unwavering in its support. He is identified with the Masonic order, belonging to Vinton Lodge, No. 62, A.

He is highly spoken of in North English and is considered one of its representative young professional men.
