Julius T. A. Doolittle, a careful, able and conscientious lawyer, practicing in Utica, was born, October 18,
1861, in the city which is still his home. His parents were Charles H. and Julia T. (Shearman) Doolittle. The former
was at one time mayor of Utica, and also justice of the supreme court in the state of New York. He was one of the
ablest judges that ever occupied the bench of the court, his record reflecting credit and honor upon the state
which honored him. The mother was descended from a family that traces its line through illustrious ancestry to
the very beginning of American history.
Julius T. A. Doolittle entered the public schools of Utica for the acquirement of his early education, and afterward
attended St. Paul's school at Concord, New Hampshire, from 1877 until 1880. He attended Yale University until he
won the bachelor of arts degree in 1884, on the completion of a four years' course, and for a brief period he engaged
in teaching in St. Paul's school, at Concord, but soon took up the study of law. His careful preparation for the
bar is manifest in the position to which he has attained as an able lawyer, conscientious in the performance of
all his professional service. He prepares his cases with great thoroughness and care, and his sound reasoning and
logical deductions entertain his familiarity with the principles of jurisprudence. Aside from his law practice
he is interested as a stockholder in many of the industries of Utica and in the financial institutions of the city.
On the 8th of February, 1893, in Utica, Mr. Doolittle was united in marriage to Miss Sophia Mann, a daughter of
James F. Mann, who was educated at Yale University, from which he was graduated with the class of 1859. His family
was one of the oldest and best known in Utica, and has been identified with its business and professional life
from the early days of the city. Mr. and Mrs. Doolittle now have three children, Maryette A., Sophia M., and Julia
T., and they also lost a daughter, Louise S., who died December 6, 1899. The parents are members of the Episcopal
church, and Mr. Doolittle's interests and activities have extended to many lines bearing directly upon the welfare
and progress of the county and of signal benefit to his fellowmen. His political allegiance is given the republican
party, and in 1905 he became special and acting surrogate of Oneida county. His social prominence is testified
by his membership in Fort Schuyler Club, Sadaquada Golf Club, the Yalinundahsis Golf Club and the University Club
of New York city.
