About Frederic Randolph King

Mr. F. R. King, the subject of our sketch, was born in this city, in 1862. His memory of his father, who died in 1864, is consequently very dim. He was born in the family home, then on Bush and Taylor streets. Mr. King was educated primarily in this city. He attended several of our leading schools, Bate's Academy among others well known in years gone by. He graduated in the high school in the class of 1879. He 1880 he entered Harvard College and was graduated there in the class of 1884. For one year afterward he was with the Oregon Improvement Company. Having decided inclination for the study of law, however, he entered the office of Fox & Kellogg. There he applied himself diligently. Naturally quick, with close reasoning powers and excellent memory, he soon mastered the intricacies of the law books, and was admitted to the practice of his profession in 1887. January 1, 1889, he became associated with the firm of Fox & Kellogg, under the title of Fox, Kellogg & King. There is not a doubt Mr. King has a brilliant career before him. He is talented, in fact, could not be otherwise. His mind is clear and keen. He is cool, self-possessed and has a great natural industry. He is thorough, too, and exhaustive in his work. He has, in fact, all the attributes essential to a bright future. Then his frame is vigorous, his health excellent. In this respect he is superior to what his father was. He is devoted to his practice and gives it all his time. Politics he keeps aloof from. Neither does he belong to many clubs or societies, for in home life is his happiness centered. He is married; his wife is a daughter of the late S. B. Boswell. Two children, bright boys, have blessed the union. Mr. King belongs only to the Bohemian Club and Native Sons.
