Viewing Charles J. Tryon (1859-1934).
Charles John Tryon moved to Minneapolis in 1886, holding law degrees from the National University Law School and Columbian College, both in Washington, D.C. After clerking a year, he became employed by the Minnesota Title Insurance and Trust Company, where he developed expertise in real estate, title and insurance law. Opening his own shop in 1895, he specialized in land titles, land litigation, abstracts and other aspects of real estate law. He taught real estate law and mortgages at the Minnesota College of law for fifteen years. He died on May 12, 1934, at age seventy-four. At memorial services for the county bar association the following year, his partner, John R. Everett, recalled that he "participated in many important cases in our local courts. He was acknowledged among lawyers and in the community as an authority on the law of real estate and land titles. He enjoyed an active, successful and continuous practice at this bar for almost fifty years."
