Walter G. Kirkbride, a partner of the well known law firm of Denman, Kirkbride, Wilson & McCabe, has practiced
before the Toledo bar for more than twenty years. He was born at Parkers Landing, Pennsylvania, on the 13th of
January, 1881, a son of Joseph A. and Annie B. (Loftus) Kirkbride. His parents removed to Findlay, Ohio, when he
was a boy and in the schools of that city he received his early training, while his college course was pursued
in the University of Michigan. He completed the law course in that institution and won his LL. B. degree in 1900.
In 1902 he was admitted to the bar and since that time has been licensed to practice in the United States courts.
His progress in his profession has been continuous and has brought him to a prominent position among the successful
attorneys of the city, where the firm of Denman, Kirkbride, Wilson & McCabe is regarded as one of the strongest
combinations at the Toledo bar.
On the 21st of June, 1904, Mr. Kirkbride was married to Miss Alice Harrop and they have become parents of three
children: Alice, Esther and Mabel.
Fraternally Mr. Kirkbride is a Mason, having attained the Knights Templar degree in the York Rite and the thirty
second degree in the Scottish Rite, while with the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine he has crossed the sands of the
desert. His political endorsement has always been given to the republican party and he closely studies the vital
questions and issues of the day. Mr. Kirkbride belongs to the Toledo Club and to the Inverness Club, and he is
also a member of the Toledo, the Ohio and the American Bar associations. He stands for all that is progressive
in community affairs and at all times for the highest standards of American citizenship. His residence is at No.
