J. Harvey Frith, a member of the Emporia bar, and a lawyer of ability, had exceptional opportunity in preparing for his profession, in that he was educated at Oxford, one of the world's greatest universities, and studied his profession at the Inner Temple, one of the Inns of Court in London, England.

Mr. Frith is a native of England where he was born in the county of Kent, Dec. 26, 1849, the son of Gilbert R. and Eugenia (Harvey) Frith, who lived on their estate in Kent county, and were descendants of ancestors belonging to England's landed gentry. J. Harvey Frith was a younger son of this old established family, and determined to carve his own career and to seek his opportunity in the New World. He immigrated to America and settled first in Canada, where he remained a few years; then in 1881 came to Emporia, Kan., where since that time—a period of twenty-nine years—he has been an active practitioner and has become one of the leaders of the Lyon county bar. For nine years he was attorney for the city of Emporia.

While in Nova Scotia, he wedded Miss Mary B. Grace, and to them have been born four children—three daughters and one son. The son, Gilbert H. Frith, is a student in the law department of the University of Kansas. Mrs. Frith and the children are communicants of the Roman Catholic church, and Mr. Frith of the Episcopal church.
