Hannibal Pardi is a young attorney who has already won favorable recognition at the Schenectady bar. He was born in Castelli, Italy, on the 5th of October, 1895, a son of Fileno and Filomena (Candera) Pardi, natives of the same country. The father, who worked at the potter's trade in Italy until he left that sunny land to come to the New World, located in 1903 in Schenectady, New York, where he was employed as a porcelain worker by the General Electric Company for several years. He died in 1909, being survived for a number of years by his wife, who passed away in 1922.

Hannibal Pardi attended the schools of Italy until nine years of age. Following the emigration of the family to the United States he continued his studies in the public schools of Albany and later of Schenectady. In 1910 he began learning the trade of toolmaker in the service of the General Electric Company, completing his apprenticeship in 1915. The following year he continued his high school studies, working at his trade in addition to attending school until the time of his graduation in 1918. Having determined upon a professional career, however, he then matriculated in the Albany Law School, from which he received the degree of LL. B. in 1921. After spending one year as clerk in the office of Judge Cooper he was admitted to the bar in 1922 and at once formed a law partnership with Ettore Mancuso, with whom he practiced in Schenectady until April, 1924, and since then has been practicing alone. Earnest effort, close application and the development of his native powers have gained for him a creditable position at a bar that has numbered many prominent representatives.

In June, 1922, Mr. Pardi was united in marriage to Miss Clementine Valente and they have a daughter: Dorothy Filomena, who was born on the 5th of May, 1923. The family residence is at No. 320 Seventh avenue in Schenectady. Mr. Pardi is a republican in politics and belongs to the Schenectady County Republican Club. Fraternally he is identified with the Knights of Pythias and the Sons of Italy, while along strictly professional lines he has membership connection with the Schenectady County Bar Association.
