Biographical Sketch

Edwin Aldrich (1836-1905), Rhode Island attorney, was educated at Tufts College, Brown University, and the Department of Law at the University of Albany. His initial training in the practice of law took place in the office of Honorable Wingate Hayes of Providence, Rhode Island. Admitted to the bar in 1863, Aldrich immediately opened his own practice in Neenah, Wisconsin, and partnered with Moses Hooper in a successful practice in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Aldrich returned to Providence in 1864 to open a private practice before partnering with Leland D. Jenckes from 1868 to 1872. Jenckes died in 1872 and Aldrich returned to his own practice. During his career he had investment interests in the Midwest, Colorado, and Texas. A lifelong Republican, Aldrich served on the Providence city assembly from 1867 to 1869 and was a member of the Free Masons.
