Park Chamberlain
Born February 6, 1877

Park Chamberlain, a member of the Iowa bar, whose duties as legal adviser to the Anamosa National Bank and Schoonover Trust Company claim the greater part of his time and attention, was born at Wyoming, Iowa, February 6, 1877. His parents were W. I. and Lucy W. Chamberlain. The father was formerly a practicing attorney of Wyoming but is now deceased. The son supplemented his early education by study in the State University of Iowa, where he received the degree of Bachelor of Philosophy on the 8th of June, 1899. His course had been preparatory for the practice of law and he was admitted to the bar by the supreme court of Iowa on the 10th of May of that year. He then opened an office in Wyoming, Iowa, where he continued in practice until July, 1900, when he formed a partnership with Judge B. H. Miller, at Anamosa. This relation was maintained until January 1, 1903, when the senior partner went upon the bench. Mr. Chamberlain then continued to practice alone until January 1, 1907, when he entered the service of the Anamosa National Bank and the Schoonover Trust Company as an officer and legal counselor, his time being entirely given to those interests save for such hours as are devoted to the management of his personal business affairs.
On the 20th of February, 1902, Mr. Chamberlain was married to Miss Lena V. Hubbell. a daughter of C. M. and D. Augusta Hubbell, of Anamosa. Their children are: William Hubbell, born May 5, 1904; and Augusta Lucile, born June 25, 1905. Mr. Chamberlain is a republican in politics and is well known through his fraternal connections, holding membership in Anamosa Lodge, No. 46, A.F.&A.M.; Mt. Sinai Chapter, No. 66, R.A.M.; Mt. Olivet Commandery, No. 36, K. T.; El Kahir Temple, A.A.0.N.M.S. at Cedar Rapids; and De Molay Consistory of the Scottish Rite at Clinton, Iowa. He is likewise a member of Sumner Lodge, No. 92, K.P. As legal counselor and official in one of Anamosa's leading financial institutions he sustains important relations to the public, while his personal characteristics have won him high regard and warm friendships in fraternal and social circles.
