1897 Biography - J. Boardman Scovell

Scovell, J. Boardman, is a son of Oliver P. Scovell, and was born December 1, 1869, in Lewiston, Niagara county, where he received his early public school education. He was graduated from the Lockport Union School in 1888, being valedictorian of his class, and then entered the law department of Cornell University, from which he was graduated with the degree of LL. B. in 1891, receiving double honors, both forensic and literary. On leaving Cornell he accepted the editorship of "Federal Cases." a law work embodying a series of decisions of the United States Circuit and District Courts from 1789 up to 1882. May 1, 1894, he opened a law office in Buffalo, where he is now practicing his profession, having offices at No. 910 Ellicott Square; he also has an office in Lewiston, where he resides. Mr. Scovell's specialty is corporation and admiralty law, and to say that he is a brilliant representative of the bar of this State is making only a conservative statement.
