Stephen W. Trowbridge received his early education in such schools as his
native town then afforded, and later he attended the old Chauneey Hall School in
Boston, Mass. At the age of nineteen, being adept at figures, he started his
business career as bookkeeper for the firm of Wetherell Bros., Milk street, Boston.
Later he became secretary and treasurer, and finally president, of the Citizens
Mutual Insurance Company of Brighton and Boston, with which company he was
connected for over twenty years.

Always interested in the law, Mr. Trowbridge sometimes regretted the lack of
a college education fitting him for that profession, and finally, in middle life, he
entered the Boston Law School, and at tlie end of two years passed very satis-
factorily the necessary e.xami nations and was admitted to the bar in the spring
of 1879. He had before this time sei-ved as a trial justice. He devoted him-self
to the practice of the law for some ten or fifteen years, finally retiring on account
of failure of eyesight and health. He was an invalid for the last ten or twelve
years of his life, and died at his home in Newton Highlands, Mass.
