L E Brigham is the proprietor of a photographic gallery in Ogden, having successfully carried on business here since January 1891. He claims Ohio as the state of his nativity, his birth having there occurred in Champaign county, on June 12, 1867. His father, George W Brigham was also a native of that county and came to the west in 1873, settling in Wisconsin, where he resided for eight years and then came to Perry, Iowa where he accepted a position as bookkeeper and clerk, devoting his attention to such work throughout the remainder of his residence there. At length, however he removed to Colorado, where he engaged in business as a horticulturist and there his death occurred.
Mr Brigham of this review is the only one of the family that ever came to Boone county. He accompanied his father on the removal to Iowa and while living in Dallas county he mastered the photographic art, learning the business in Perry. He followed his chosen vocation in that place for three years and in January 1891, arrived in Ogden, establishing his studio here. He deeps in touch with the latest processes in the work of photography, gets excellent results and now enjoys a very liberal and well deserved patronage.
Mr Brigham was united in marriage to Mrs Lucy Mowry Bender, who is now engaged in the millinery business in Ogden, having conducted her store in this place for six years. Mr Brigham votes with the Republican party, having been one of its supporters since age gave him the right of franchise. He belongs to the Masonic fraternity in this town and to Central Lodge, No 72, K P of Boone, while his wife is a member on the Congregational church. He has spent the greater part of his life in the west and possesses the enterprising and progressive spirit so common to this district of the country, which has already won him a very creditable degree of success in his business affairs.
