Biography of Frederick Howard


Howard, Frederick, Buffalo, was born at East Aurora, N. Y., September 12, 1855, and is the youngest of a family of five children (three of whom are living, the other two being Mrs. Stella E.

The father, a carpenter and builder by trade, died in July, 1871, aged sixty-two; the mother still survives at the age of over eighty. Mr. Howard, when three years old, moved with his parents to Elma, Erie county, where he received his elementary education in the district schools. He also took a course at Aurora Academy, taught school one winter, and in 1874 came to Buffalo, where, in January, 1875, he became a student at law in the office of Milo A. Whitney. He was admitted to the bar before the Supreme Court in April. 1878, and remained in Mr. Whitney's office until 1883, becoming his partner in 1880 under the firm name of Whitney & Howard. Mr. Howard practiced alone from 1883 to January, 1888, when he formed a copartnership with Hon. Myron H. Clark, which, as Howard & Clark, still continues. He has been very successful in the general practice of his profession, and is recognized as an able and painstaking lawyer. In politics he is a staunch and loyal Republican, and a member of the Good Government Club. He is a trustee and secretary of the Children's Aid Society (properly known as the Newsboys' and Bootblacks' Home), and for several years was secretary of the Buffalo Orphan Asylum. He has been connected with the First Congregational church of Buffalo since its organization, being one of its orginal members. October 25, 1881, he married Harriet E., daughter of the late Moses T. Mabie, a well known shoe dealer, of Buffalo. She died December 29, 1896, leaving two daughters, Marion and Ruth.
