He was educated in the public schools of Camden City, and afterward in Temple College, now Temple University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; was admitted to the bar as an attorney at the June term of 1899, and as a counsellor at the November term of 1910. While a boy he studied shorthand and became so proficient that on January 1, 1895, he was made assistant of the then Official Court Reporter of the Second Judicial District of New Jersey, Mr. George W. Black, and upon Mr. Black's resignation from the position in June, 1904, was made official court reporter, which position he has since held. He is a member of the Episcopal Church, the South Jersey Chapter, Sons of the American Revolution, and local lodges of Masons and Elks. In 1907 he married Anna R. Kingdon, of Mt.
