Lewis George Fowler, World war veteran and successful young attorney of Utica, is here practicing as a member of the firm of Lewis, Pratt & Fowler. A native of Auburn, Cayuga county, New York, he was born on the 30th of September, 1890, and obtained his grammar and high school education at Port Byron in the same county. It was in 1911 that he entered Syracuse University for more advanced intellectual training and in the following year become a student in the law department of the same institution, from which he was graduated in 1915 with the degree of LL. B. After a short clerkship in Rochester, New York, he came in 1915 to Utica, where he obtained a clerkship in the law office of the firm of Pratt & Comstock. Mr. Fowler was admitted to the New York bar in July, 1916, and in the succeeding year formed a partnership with Willard R. Pratt as junior member of the firm of Pratt & Fowler. He joined the army for service in the World war in 1918 and spent ten months overseas, after which he returned to Utica, resuming his professional work in association with Mr. Pratt. On the 1st of May, 1920, the two partners were joined by William E. Lewis and the firm has since been known as Lewis, Pratt & Fowler. It has gained high standing at the Utica bar, having built up a substantial and representative law business, and Mr. Fowler has won merited recognition as an able and rising young counselor.

On the 26th of February, 1923, Mr. Fowler was joined in wedlock to Miss Marie St. Aunauld, a grandniece of Governor Horatio Seymour and daughter of Henry St. Anauld of Utica, New York. Mr. Fowler exercises his right of franchise in support of the men and measures of the republican party but otherwise takes no active part in politics, preferring to concentrate his time and energies upon his professional interests. He belongs to the Republican Club and to the American Legion, while fraternally he is identified with the Masons and the Benevolent Protective Order of Elks.
