He was educated in the Geneva public schools, and upon leaving the high school he learned the saddlery business under the direction of his father. In 1877, when but eighteen years of age, he engaged in the saddlery trade for himself, built up a profitable business and followed it for more than thirty years, or until his death, which occurred May 7, 1908.
