[View enlarged]

Mathew Stanley Ogonowski, a capable young attorney of Utica, who is fast winning recognition in professional ranks, was born in Buffalo, New York, on the 21st of August, 1896. His parents, Victor and Antonina Ogonowski, are well known and highly esteemed residents of Schenectady. In the grammar and high schools of the latter city he pursued his education and when a young man of nineteen years became a clerk in the office of his brother, Thaddeus Stanley Ogonowski, a prominent attorney of Schenectady. It was in 1916 that he entered the Albany Law School, from which institution he was graduated with the degree of LL. B. in 1919. During the previous year, however, he had spent a brief period in the military service of the country at Pensacola, Florida, in the department of naval aviation.

Mr. Ogonowski was admitted to the bar on the 5th of October, 1915, and in September of the following year entered upon the practice of his chosen profession in Utica, where he has already built up a clientage of gratifying proportions. He displays marked ability in analyzing his cases and in readily seeing the relation between cause and effect, while he is seldom, if ever, at fault in the application of a legal principle.

On the 29th of July, 1918, Mr. Ogonowski was united in marriage to Miss Stanislawa Yager, whose loss he was called upon to mourn four and one-half years later, for she departed this life on December 3, 1922. Mr. Ogonowski is a member of the Justinian Society of Syracuse and the Republican Club of Utica. In politics he maintains an independent attitude. He belongs to several Polish societies and is keenly interested in the welfare of the Polish people of Utica, among whom he exercises considerable influence. He has gained an enviable reputation as a legal practitioner for one of his years, and his many friends feel no hesitancy in predicting for him a future of continued success.
