Louis C. Boyle

Louis C. Boyle was born February 26, 1866, at Port Colborn, Canada, and is of Irish descent.  He spent his childhood in the town of his birth, his family removing, when he was eight years of age, to Watford, Canada.  He acquired the rudiments of an education there, and left home when fifteen years of age, going to Colorado to work in the mines.  He saved his money and studied at night with a determination of taking an academic course at Ann Arbor.  Before he had completed the course he found that the sum he had saved was insufficient to take him through the academic course, so changed to law and graduated from the school in 1889, being afterwards admitted to the bar in Michigan.  Mr. Boyle went to Kansas and settled at Fort Scott.  He was always a Democrat, and the members of his party elected him Prosecuting Attorney of Bourbon County, an office he held for four years.  After his terms in this office he returned to general practice in Ft. Scott, but was afterwards the nominee of his party for Attorney-General of Kansas in 1896.  He was elected, and at the conclusion of his term in 1899 came to this city, where he has resided since.  Mr. Boyle is a member of many fraternal and social orders, among them the Elks, Masons, K. of P., and is a Scottish Rite Mason and Shriner.  He married Miss Gertrude Burson, of Garnett, Kas., in 1890.  They have three children, George, Katherine, and Clara Louise.
