Harry T. Abernathy was born in Leavenworth, Kansas, May 23, 1865, the son of J. L. Abernathy, the pioneer furniture manufacturer of the West.  He went to the public and high schools of Leavenworth, and then entered Hamilton College, Clinton, N. Y., from which institution he was graduated in 1887.

     He came at once to Kansas City, the Abernathy Furniture Company having been removed to this town in that year, and became cashier of the company.  He held the position for eight years, and in 1895 was given the place of assistant cashier of the First National Bank.   In 1899 he was made cashier, the position he still holds.
