Transcribed from Case: "removed with his parents to Ripley, Chautauqua County, N.Y., in 1816, then a comparative wilderness. His first education was from teachers in his father's house, employed for part of the year. At a later period he began the study of the classics and higher English branches with J. C. Center. After nearly two years, active symptons of consumption-the family scourge-appeared, and he sought relief on one of his brother's vessels, engaged in the carrying-trade on the lakes, which proved so beneficial, that the next year he entered the Westfield Academy, where he completed his preparatory studies, and then commenced the study of the law with Dixon & Smith, with whom he remained until the spring of 1834, when he started for Chicago, arriving May 14; and shortly after, formed a law partnership with Alex. N. Fullerton, which continued for something over one year. He engaged in real-estate speculation and acquired what was then deemed a handsome fortune; but the great financial crash of 1837 found him with large liabilities-some of his own, but largely as security for others; he asked and received no compromise, sought the shelter of no bankrupt law, but devoted nearly seventeen years of labor to their extinguishment, and paid them all principal and interest.
In the fall of 1835, he formed a law partnership with Giles Spring, which continued until 1849, when Spring was elected judge of Cook County Court of Common Pleas. The firm of Spring & Goodrich attained a wide professional reputation and an extensive practice. In 1854, he entered into partnership with W. W. Farwell, and, in 1856, Sidney Smith was admitted into the firm, constituting the firm of Goodrich, Farwell & Smith, which transacted a large business in the State and United-States courts, occupying the position of one of the leading law firms of Chicago. The unremitting labor of so many years began to tell upon his health, and by advice of his physician, in 1858, he went to Europe. After his return, in 1859, he was elected one of the judges of the Superior Court of Chicago, which position he held between four and five years, when he returned to the bar, resuming his place in the old firm of Goodrich, Farwell & Smith; which continued until 1869, when it was dissolved, and he retired from general practice, engaging only in special cases. In common with hundreds of others, he saw the accumulation of years of toil swept away in the great Chicago fire of October 9, 1871. To retrieve something of his losses, he again entered into active practice; but after five years of intense and successful professional labor, his nervous system gave way, and his prostration became so complete that he was forced to abandon all professional labor.
As a citizen, Mr. Goodrich has been active in promoting the material, moral, and religious interests of Chicago. He served as alderman the second year of its existence as a city; was one of the first members of the school board, and helped to lay the foundations of its splendid school system; he aided in organizing the first temperance society and the first bible society in Chicago, and is now a life-member and vice-president of the American Bible-Society. He has been a trustee and the secretary of Rush Medical College from its foundation. To provide facilities for higher education in the Northwest, he, in association with Hon. John Evans, Orrington Lunt, and others, procured the charter of and established the Northwestern University at Evanston, and by personal contributions, the pledge of their individual credit, their unremitted labors, watchful care, and judicious management of its financial interests, secured its endowment and the honorable reputation it bears. The university has conferred on Mr. Goodrich the degree of L.L.D. He was perhaps more largely instrumental than any one else in inducing the late Eliza Garrett to protect and endow the Garrett Biblical Institute at Evanston, for the education and theological training of young men for the Christian ministry, which has been in successful operation for thirty years. With others he prevented the sale of the lot owned by the First M.-E. Church of Chicago, now in the business centre of the city, and drew and helped to obtain a special charter for the erection thereon of a building for business as well as church purposes, from which rents have been received, and paid for the founding of other churches, amounting to $300,000. He was one of the projectors of the founding of the Washingtonian Home of Chicago, for the cure of inebriates.
Belonging to the same political party with Mr. Lincoln, and having been associated with him in important lawsuits, he became one of his earliest and most ardent admirers and advocates of his nomination for president. On the breaking out of the Rebellion, he was an active member of the Union Defence Committee of Chicago, which organized, fed, fitted out, and sent to the field several regiments of men, who rushed to the defence of the Union, before the government was able to organize or care for them; and when the emancipation proclamation set the slaves free, he acted as a member of the Freedman's Aid Society in caring for them; and until the failure of his health, there were few charitable or religious benevolences which did not receive his best thought and active support, and in which he does not still retain a lively interest. He has seen what few living men have seen, or will ever see, a frontier hamlet,containing only eight frame dwellings, grow into a city of nearly 800,000 inhabitants. He has been a member of the Methodist-Episcopal church since 1832."4
