<p>Jones Day traces its beginnings to the firm of Blandin &amp; Rice, formed in Cleveland, Ohio in 1893. Edward J. Blandin was one of the most noted litigators in Cleveland; he later was elected President of the Cleveland Bar Association, becoming the first of nine Jones Day partners to be so honored. William Rice was a successful business lawyer. They took on one associate, Frank Ginn, and the Firm rapidly expanded. Tragedy struck in 1910, when Rice was mysteriously murdered while walking home from dinner. The murder was never solved.&nbsp;<br />
<br />
The Firm survived this shock, and in 1913 Frank Ginn became the first of what have been only seven Managing Partners of Jones Day in the century since that time. Other successful lawyers joined the Firm, including the state&rsquo;s leading utilities lawyer, Sheldon Tolles, and a leading railroad lawyer, Tom Hogsett. By 1920, Cleveland had become the fifth largest city in the United States and the home of many large industrial corporations. At that time, the Firm included in its associate ranks two future Managing Partners, Tom Jones and Jack Reavis.&nbsp;<br />
<br />
Among the Firm&rsquo;s most prominent clients were the Van Swearingen Brothers, who controlled the Alleghany Corporation, the Nickle Plate Railroad, the Union Trust Bank, and the Union Station and Terminal Tower complex in downtown Cleveland. John D. Rockefeller was also a significant client, and the Firm became the leading utility law firm in Ohio. It was counsel to the bank credit committee which successfully concluded the reorganization of the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company, characterized as &quot;the greatest example of equity reorganization.&quot;</p>
