Ninian H. Welch, Born at Rosecrans in Lake County,
Given Sketch
Lake County Man Who Went to Chicago After Teaching Country School and Studied Law is Climbing Up Ladder and May Succeed to Congressman William Lorimer's Seat as Representative.
If the Republicans of the Sixth Congressional district nominate Ninian H. Welch for Congress, and if the voters of the district elect him to the place vacated by Senator William Lorimer, Chicago will have a representative at Washington who, at any time, at the drop of the hat or quicker, can answer almost any question, or deliver a discourse, bearing on the history of Chicago, says the Chicago Evening Post.
This assistant judge of the Probate court, although not a native of the city, has shown a deep interest in Chicago's origin and growth, studying and investigating everything bearing on that subject. Today he is recognized as an authority on all matters pertaining to the early history of Chicago and frequently is called on by club and societies to talk to their members on this subject.
Early Entry in the Race.
Mr. Welch is a resident of the Thirteenth ward, and has been identified actively with the Republican organization there. His friends entered him in the congressional race the moment they learned Mr. Lorimer had been elected to the senate, and they have been at work quietly in his interest ever since. They report having received much encouragement in their preliminary campaign and believe the prospects of success are bright.
Their candidate was a New Year gift to his parents. He was born on January 1, 1873, on a farm near Russell, and as that locality practically is a suburb of Chicago, he might almost be called a native. He has had the same experience as many other young lawyers, in that he attended country school, then prepared himself for teaching and taught for several years finally taking up the study of the law and being admitted to practice.
Has Received Three Degrees.
He attended the normal school at Valparaiso, Ind. and later went to Wheaton College, where he was graduated after a four year course. Continuing his education further he attended Beloit college for one year was graduated from Lake Forest college in 1899, and from the Kent College of Law in 1902. He is entitled to write after his name the letters B.S., M. A., LL D, but refrains from so doing.
Mr. Welch's reputation as an orator is such he was called on by the Republican national committee last year to make a number of speeches in the middle west for the national ticket. He was appointed an assistant to Probate Judge Cutting on Dec. 3, 1906. He was married a year ago last June, and his residence is at 194 West Adams street.
