Mieczyslaw Jałowiecki was born to a prominent Polish landowning family of northern Lithuania in 1876. He studied in St. Petersburg,
Riga, and several German universities, completing degrees in agriculture and agricultural economics. His career in Russian
civil service, in agricultural finance, and in business, gave him the opportunity to travel and to develop an intimate knowledge
of the economic and cultural landscape of Lithuania and its neighborhood. Shortly before World War I, Jałowiecki was elected
president of the assembly of the nobility of northeastern Lithuania.
