James Frawly

JAMES FRAWLY is a Nome lawyer, but has a business instinct, and is engaged in mercantile lines and mining enterprises as well as in the practice of law.

He is a native of Madison, Wisconsin, and dates his birthday anniversaries from January 26, I860. He was graduated from the University of Wisconsin in 1884. Governor La Follette, who has risen to a position of political eminence as the representative of anti-machine politics, was a member of this class. Mr. Frawly took both a collegiate and law course in this institution.

In 1877, and before he attended the University, he was in the Black Hills. After graduating, he returned to Deadwood. He was in the Cripple Creek country in 1896 where he practiced his profession and engaged in mining. He came to Nome in 1900, and has since been interested in law and mining. He has holdings in the Gold Run country and thought that he had struck it rich in 1900 when he rocked out $400 in four hours on that stream.
