James Carroll Swift

James Carroll Swift was born February 7, 1869, in Litchfield County, Connecticut.  His early boyhood was spent on a farm, but his parents later removed to the town of Binghampton, N. Y.  He attended the public and high schools, and then, deciding upon law as a profession, entered the law department of Cornell University.

     He came to Kansas City in 1893, and for two years was identified with various law firms.  In 1895 he commenced the practice of law alone.  It was in 1899 that the Chicago Live Stock Commission company, for which he had long been attorney, made him a flattering offer for his sole services, which he accepted.

     Mr. Swift is now vice-president and assistant general manager of the company, and also occupies a similar position with the Lee Live Stock Company of Chicago and St. Louis.

     The only society to which Mr. Swift belongs is the Knights of Columbus.

     He was married in October, 1898, to Miss Laura Laing.  They have one child, J. C., Jr., born in 1901.
