Biography of Henry H. Seymour


Seymour, Henry H., Buffalo, was born at Mount Morris, N. Y., October 27, 1849, and prepared for college at Mount Morris Academy. After one year in Dartmouth College he entered Cornell University, from which institution he was graduated in 1871, with the degree of Bachelor of Science. He also received one of the Goidwin Smith prizes, then deemed the highest rewards in the gift of the university. After a season of study and travel abroad he returned to Mount Morris and began the study of law in the office of his uncles, McNeil Seymour and George Hastings, two of the most widely known lawyers in the Genesee Valley, and was admitted to the bar in 1874. He then went abroad again and spent over a year in further study and sight-seeing. In 1876 he returned to this country and opened an office in Buffalo, where he has since practiced his profession.
