In the business world Mr. Brooks was a man of force and influence. Though most unpretentious in his daily life, he was a deep student, and having traveled a great deal, he was a man with whom it was a pleasure to come in contact. In 1897-8 he served as president of the Chamber of Commerce, and was one of the most efficient and conscientious executive officers that that great trading organization ever had. In the past two years he had been chairman of the construction committee of the Chamber of Commerce, and in that capacity had much to do with the erection of the fine new building which that body has just taken possession of.

From early associations Mr. Brooks has shown a decided taste for the banking business, and was a strong man in financial circles, being a director of the Northwestern National Bank of Minneapolis, and of the Second National of Winona. He had given the money questions a good deal of study, and was well informed upon all matters pertaining to it. Mr. Brooks was an enthusiastic yachtsman, and had served as commodore of the Minnetonka Yacht Club.
