Biography of William H. Hotchkiss


Hotchkiss, William H., Buffalo, though still a young man, even if the term be narrowly interpreted, has already made a name for himself, and accomplished much good in a field of usefulness cultivated too little by men of his standing and capacity. He was prepared for college at the public schools and in Glidden's Classical School in Jamestown, N. Y.., going from there to Hamilton College, where he was graduated at the age of twenty-two, with the degree of A. B. He secured the much coveted Phi Beta Kappa key, besides honors in literature, oratory, debating, Greek, Latin and mathematics, and delivered the Latin salutatory. Three years after his graduation his college conferred upon him the degree of A. M. Mr. Hotchkiss then determined to study law, and with a view to obtaining a practical knowledge of legal procedure as early as possible, he accepted the appointment of clerk in the Surrogate's Court of Cayuga county, at Auburn, N. Y:, serving two years. Meantime, in 1888, he was admitted to the bar and in 1891 removed to Buffalo, where he entered into partnership with E. L. Parker and where he has since pursued his profession. The firm of Parker & Hotchkiss has risen rapidly in both influence and volume of business and now ranks among the leading commercial and banking law firms of Buffalo. Mr. Hotchkiss is a lecturer on the law of personal property in the Buffalo Law School. He has contributed numerous articles on travel and municipal government to the magazines. He was born at Whitehall, Washington county, N. Y., September 7, 1864, and was married April 25, 1895, to Katherine Tremaine Bush of Buffalo.
