Hugh Charles Brady

Hugh Charles Brady was born February 19, 1870, in Kansas City, Missouri, and while he has wondered far and wide, has always made this town his home.  He learned the trade of compositor when only twelve, and by its aid managed to secure himself an education.  He attended the public schools, and also took a course in St. Francis Institute, Osage Mission, Kas.

     His work as a compositor took him all over the country, but in 1885 he returned to Kansas City for a permanent residence.  He worked at his trade here until 1894, when he entered the law office of Frank P. Walsh, and there he completed the studies begun a year before.  In 1896 he was admitted to the bar, and has always been more or less connected with Mr. Walsh's office ever since.  He was appointed Assistant Prosecuting Attorney in 1897, and served with honor and credit for two years.

     In the spring of 1902 Mr. Brady was nominated by the Democrats for Police Judge, and led his ticket by a large majority.  Mr. Brady is an honorary member of the local Typographical Union, and has always been a staunch advocate of organized labor.  He was married in 1898.
