Maruice Johnson Winfield

Lawyer, 400 Broadway, Loganport, Ind.

Married: Abby Rogers, June 1, 1897 Logansport, Ind.

Winfield studied law in his father's office at Logansport and was admitted to the Indiaia bar im 1896.
He has been practicing in Logansport ever since that time.
He promised to write a letter for the book if I would send him a duplicate for 'Blue Circular No. 10' - which I did at once,
and about which I reminded him four of five tines.

For a while Winfield was the most bashful letter write in the class; but he has since been outclassed by that triumvirate of sphynxes, Foster, McNitt and Miller.
