Oneida County, NY Biographies





Although he has engaged in the practice of law only a few years, Edward L. O'Donnell, of Rome, has made a highly favorable impression on his legal brethren and the general public and is now well established in his profession. He is a native of Springfield, Missouri, born January 25, 1883, a son of Patrick H. and Alice (Cornish) O'Donnell. He arrived with his parents in Rome very early in his boyhood and has practically spent his entire life in this city.

After receiving his preliminary education in the public schools Mr. O'Donnell entered the Rome Free Academy, from which he was graduated in 1901, at the age of eighteen years. Being attracted to the law, he entered the office of Charles Carmichael, where he spent two years, completing his studies at the law school of the Syracuse University. He immediately began practice at Rome, where from the start he was favorably received. He is now serving as special surrogate. His success is the direct result of special ability for a difficult vocation and untiring industry. Fraternally he is identified with the Knights of Columbus. He is welcome in social circles and is rapidly gaining in popularity and reputation as a man and as an able and conscientious represeutative of the bar.
