1897 Biography - Edmund Howard Southworth

Southworth, Edmund Howard, son of Albert H, and Julia M. Southworth, was born August 5, 1855, in Lockport, N. Y. His education was received at the old Lockport Union School, and at the Hudson River Institute, from which he was graduated. He studied law with the late Sullivan Caverno, and was admitted to the bar in 1879. Soon afterward he became the local correspondent and agent for the Buffalo Sunday Courier, and retained the same until a few weeks ago. His writings were peculiarly unlike those of any other person, being grammatically correct and extremely clear and interesting, no matter what the subject. Thus he gained much prominence in the newspaper profession. Of late years he has handled all the Buffalo Sunday papers sold in Lockport, successfully keeping the field to himself.
