Biography of Frederick B. Adams
Oneida County, NY Biographies





Although one of the younger members of the Utica bar, Frederick Blanchard Adams has established himself in a creditable position as a member of the legal profession in Utica, having already gained a reputation as an able lawyer that many an older practitioner might well envy. He was born in this city October 19, 1875, his parents being Chambers H. and Mary (Farnum) Adams. The family is an old one in New York. The paternal grandfather was born in Rensselaer county, whence he removed to Oneida county, so that Chambers H. Adams was born in Utica. For the past thirty seven years the father of our subject has been a member of the Utica fire department and is now its captain.

After completing a course in the public schools and spending one term as a student in the high school of New Haven, Connecticut, in 1893, Frederick B. Adams entered the Utica Free Academy, from which he was graduated with the class of 1897. He next matriculated in Yale University, where he completed a four years' course in 1901. This served as a broad basis on which to rest the professional learning which was acquired in two years' attendance at the Yale Law School, from which he was graduated with the class of 1903. In June of the same year he was admitted to the bar and, returning to Utica, opened offices in his native city, where he has now for eight years successfully followed his profession. His careful preparation is one of the strong points in his growing success. He has a keen, rapid, logical mind, a ready capacity for hard work, and combines with those qualities eloquence of language, a strong personality, an excellent presence, an earnest, dignified manner and marked strength of character, together with a thorough grasp of the law and the ability to accurately apply its principles.
