MILES F. GILBERT, lawyer, Cairo, is the junior partner of the law firm of Green & Gilbert; was born September 11, 1846, at Alton, Ill. He received a high school education in Alton, Ill., and entered the Washington University, but was compelled to quit this course on account of failing health. He then became a student in the Pennsylvania Military Academy, where, through the rational discipline of that institution, he was restored to health. He began the study of law in 1866, and after two years' reading was admitted to the bar. He then became a member of the senior class in the Law Department of Harvard University, and received the degree conferred by that institution in 1869. He has been a member of the well-known law firm of Green & Gilbert since 1870, in which year he was married to Miss Addie L. Barry. He is a Vestryman in the Protestant Episcopal Church.
