Lenawee Lawyers (excerpt)

The Toledo Evening News recently issued an elaborate write-up under the title of “Men who have won reputation in that city,” from which we take the sketches below concerning two former Lenawee countians:

Horton C. Rorick was born Dec. 16, 1866, in Lenawee county, Michigan.  He entered Adrian college, graduating therefrom in ’90, and from University of Michigan L.L.B., law school, class of ’92, and also took special courses in political economy and international law and art in literary department. Mr. Rorick spent the summer of ’90 in Toledo in E.W. Tolerton’s office.  He took first honors of his class at graduation in ’90, and was admitted to the bar of Michigan, June ’92.  Mr. Rorick came to settle in this city permanently in November, ’92, and opened a suite of offices in the Nasby building and commenced to practice law.  In March, ’93, he was admitted to the bar of Ohio.  Mr. Rorick married in ’91, and at present resides at 632 Oakwood avenue.
