Jacob Albert Harzfeld

Jacob Albert Harzfeld was born in Chicago, Illinois, January 30, 1877.  He lived in that city until his twentieth year, and his education had its beginning in the ward schools of the city.  He entered the city high schools at the conclusion of his ward schooling, and after his graduation took the classical course at the University of Chicago.  When this course had been finished, Mr. Harzfeld became a student at the Northwestern University Law School, and pursued his studies until he had graduated from the institution. 

     He came to Kansas City in 1897, and almost immediately entered the law office of Mr. I. J. Ringolski.  He remained with Mr. Ringolski for over three years, being engaged almost exclusively on the brief work of the office.

     He had been admitted to the bar in January, 1898, and during the two years following was given much opportunity for the practice of his profession in following the general practice of Mr. Ringolski's office.  In 1900 Mr. Harzfeld left Mr. Ringolski's office and engaged in general practice for himself, officing in the New York Life building, and making a specialty of commercial law.

    He is a member of the Progress Club and of the Young Men's Club.
