      Harry Rogers Kern

      Harry Rogers Kern has been a prominent member of the Winchester bar for a quarter of a century. He has lived and practiced law in the section of Virginia where his family has been prominent for many generations, and at all times noted for their intelligence and their intense interest in religion and education. . . .

      Harry Rogers was born in Winchester, September 23, 1873, and was educated at the high school of that city, the Shenandoah Valley Academy, Randolph-Macon College at Ashland, and the University of Virginia, where he received his Bachelor of Laws degree in 1896. For a year after completing his course at the University he was the associate editor of the American and English Encyclopaedia of Law at Northport, Long Island.

      On returning to Virginia Mr. Kern established himself in practice at Winchester. He has handled a general practice, and has had a large and successful volume of business in all the local, state and federal courts. He was commonwealth attorney for the City of Winchester for many years and is now general receiver for the Circuit Court of Frederick County and for the Corporation Court in Winchester. During the World war he was active in all kinds of war work.

      In January, 1902, in Winchester, he married Miss Anne Cover, daughter of Thomas and Elizabeth (Zepp) Cover. Mrs. Kern is a native of Frederick County. They have two children, Anne Brooke and Harry R., Jr.
