Biography of George F. Brownell


Brownell, George F., Buffalo, was born in Des Moines, Iowa, June 5, 1861. When he was about five years of age his parents removed to New York State and soon thereafter located at Medina, Orleans county, where he received his elementary education and graduated at the High School; he also attended the Lockport Union School and the University of Michigan. He began the study of law in the office of Childs & Pitts at Medina and after graduating at the Albany Law School and the Law Department of Michigan University was admitted to the bar in 1883. In December of that year he removed to Buffalo and entered the office of Sprague, Morey & Sprague. In December, 1888, he became a member of that firm which continued under the firm name of Sprague, Morey, Sprague & Brownell until 1894 when Mr. Morey retired and Mr. Moot joined the firm, the firm name becoming Sprague, Moot, Sprague & Brownell. In consequence of the death of Hon. E. Sprague in 1895, and the addition to the firm of Mr. Wm. L. Marcy in 1897, the firm became Moot, Sprague, Brownell & Marcy, which firm still continues, doing a general law practice and particularly corporation law. In May, 1897, Mr. Brownell was appointed general solicitor of the Erie Railroad Company, with headquarters in New York city, but continues his connection with the Buffalo firm of which he is a member.
