Hon. Horatio L. Wait
Horatio Loomis Wait, b. 8 Aug 1836; m. 1860, Clara Conant Long, resided 4919 Madison Ave., Chicago, IL. He is master in chancery of the Circuit Court of Cook County, and was born in New York City. His father was a merchant in that city. His grandfather, Marmaduke, served in the second war with England, and his great-grandfather, Joseph Wait, of Vermont, was a colonel in the first war, serving under Gen. Ethan Allen. Horatio was educated at Columbia College grammar school. Went to Chicago in 1856. Read law with Joseph N. Baker, but before being admitted to practice the civil war broke out. He entered the navy and remained there for nine years, joining the European squadron after peace was declared. Mr. Wait left the navy in 1870, and the same year was admitted to the bar and opened an office in Chicago, soon finding a good business on his hands. In 1876 he was appointed master in chancery, and since that date has made a specialty of chancery practice. He ignores politics entirely, attends exclusively to the study and duties of his profession. A gentleman who knows Mr. Wait well, thus wrote to the editor of the Bench and Bar of Chicago: "Mr. H. L. Wait is a polished gentleman, a scholar of unusual attainments, and a conversationalist of marked ability. He has also been an extensive traveler. As a lawyer he is well read, of excellent judgment, and of unimpeachable integrity. He has for some years occupied the position of master in chancery in Chicago of the Circuit Court of Cook County, by the appointment of the judges of that court." He is a vestryman of St. Paul's Episcopal Church of Hyde Park, and a man of high standing in the community. Children:
1. James Joseph Wait, b. 1 Mar 1861. He graduated at the Hyde Park school in 1878, and entered the New York Nautical School Ship "St. Mary's" the same year. Made a voyage to Lisbon, Portugal, and Madeira, graduating in 1879, receiving the first medal. Sailed from New York. In 1879, made a voyage to Shanghai, China, and Iloilo, Philippine Islands. On the return voyage the ship was disabled in a gale by the springing of her rudder head. Put into Cape Town, Africa, for repairs, and returned home in 1880. At present he is freight contracting agent for the North Chicago Rolling Mills.
