Portrait of Joseph Carl Schroeder.

“Joseph Carl Schroeder, attorney at law, with offices in the Merchants Laclede building in St. Louis, in which city he was born February 15, 1880, is a son of John H. Schroeder, whose birth occurred in Oestnerbroeck, Germany, …and  … Anna M. Meier … born in Hanover, Germany. ”
“Joseph C. Schroeder, who was the fourth in order of birth, was educated in the public and parochial schools of St. Louis and later continued his studies in the Jones Commercial College and Walther College, both of St. Louis, Missouri. He next entered the Benton College of Law, from which he was graduated with the LL. B. degree in 1915, and in December of that year he was admitted to the bar. Since that time he has engaged in general law practice, largely specializing in civil cases and he combines a comprehensive knowledge of the principles of jurisprudence with marked ability in applying these principles to the points in litigation. He belongs to the Missouri State Bar Association and enjoys the high respect of his colleagues and contemporaries in the profession. He was appointed provisional judge by the judges of the city, his duty being to occupy the bench when the judges needed assistance through illness or through an over-crowded docket.
Mr. Schroeder belongs to Missouri Lodge, No. 1, A. F. & A. M., and to the Elks Lodge, No. 9. In politics he is an active republican and is a member of the St. Louis republican*city central committee, serving on several important committees, but has never been an office seeker, although keenly interested in the vital political problems of the day. He is a lover of music and reads extensively, especially giving his time to history, science and research work. Aside from his connection with the Elks and Masons he is identified with the United Commercial Travelers, the Illinois Commercial Men’s Association, the Illinois Traveling Men’s Association, the American Traveling Men’s Association, the Liberty Bell Club and the Century Boat Club.

According to the 1900 US Census,  Joseph’s occupation was “liquor business”. Joseph’s death certificate lists his occupation as lawyer.
