Illinois College of Law in Chicago.
Locating in Klamath Falls, he has
practiced there since.
Groesbeck has served as chair
man of the agricultural committee
of the Klamath Falls Chamber of
Commerce. He promoted and or
ganized the first potato school
there. He has served three terms as
president of the Klamath Chamber
of Commerce and is chairman of
the Klamath county library board.
One of the “charter members”
