Charles Marshall Baldwin

Charles Marshall Baldwin was born in Winchester, Frederick County, Virginia, February 15, 1867, the son of Dr. Cornelius Baldwin, who served throughout the Civil War as a surgeon on the staff of "Stonewall" Jackson.

     His education was received at the Shenandoah Valley Academy in Winchester, and after completing his course there he came to Kansas City in 1885.  His first position was with the Robert Keith Furniture Company, and he has been with that firm ever since.  Beginning at the very bottom of the ladder, he worked his way, and is now vice-president of the company.

     Mr. Baldwin has always been active and enthusiastic in public and political matters.  He is high in the councils of the Democratic party, but has always refused office.  In 1901 he was elected a member of the Board of Directors of Convention Hall, and in 1902 was re-elected.  His is a member of the Commercial Club, and also belongs to the Kansas City Club.

     Mr. Baldwin was married in 1895 to Miss Lady Belle Hammett, and they have two children, Cornelius Hammett and Fanny Belle.
