Jacob L. Lorie was born in Natchez, Mississippi,
February 18, 1872. He is practically a Kansas City product,
however, as his father, Nathan Lorie, came here in 1880.
The subject of this sketch attended the
public schools and then the Central High School, from which
institution he was graduated with high honors in 1891.
Mr. Lorie went from Central to Ann Arbor,
where he completed the six years' course in five years. He
received his B. L. degree in 1895, and in 1896 had his law degree
conferred upon him.
He returned to Kansas City, where he at once
commenced the practice of his profession. Mr. Lorie's specialty
is commercial law, and he has already established himself
firmly. He is a member of the local Bar Association, and also
belongs to the Knife and Fork Club.
While at Ann Arbor Mr. Lorie served as
managing editor of the University of Michigan daily paper, and made it
powerful and profitable.
