William Warder Avery

William Warder Avery was born in Clinton, Missouri, May 28, 1873.  His father was one of the early Missouri pioneers, having been born and reared in Henry County.

     The subject of this sketch attended the public and high schools in Clinton, and then spent three years at William Jewell College in Liberty.  After leaving college, he accepted employment with the Burlington Railroad in Kansas City, entering the office as clerk, and rising to the position of assistant ticket agent.  With the launching of the Kansas City, Pittsburg,  & Gulf Railroad, Mr. Avery went into its service as ticket agent and chief clerk, and was afterwards made assistant general passenger agent.  When the road became the Kansas City Southern, Mr. Avery was made general passenger agent at Texarkana, but resigned the position to return to Kansas City as chief clerk of the general passenger agent, the position he now holds with the Kansas City Southern.

     Mr. Avery is a member of the Phi Gamma Delta Fraternity, and also belongs to the Railway Club of Kansas City.  He was married December 25, 1899, to Miss Margaret Kelly.  They have one son, Frank.
