William Bailey Clarke Brown

William Bailey Clarke Brown was born in Sibley, Missouri, in 1861.  His father, Dr. James T. Brown, came out to Missouri from Virginal in 1837, and played a prominent part in the development of the State.  The subject of this sketch was reared in Independence, and received his early education in the public schools.  From there he entered Westminister College, from which he was graduated in 1883 with the degree of A. B.  He then took a three years' course in the Harvard Law School, and returning to Missouri in 1888, located in Kansas City, and commenced the practice of law with Judge J. K. Cravens.
     Mr. Brown has played a prominent part in Republican politics, and carried his party's standard in the Congressional campaign of 1890, failing, however, to overcome the large Democratic majority in Jackson and Lafayette Counties.
     He was married in 1888 to Miss Anna Jones, of Seward, Neb., and they have two children, Mercedes and Irene, born respectively in 1890 and 1892.
     At present, and for some time past, Mr. Brown has been practicing law by himself.  He belongs to the Bar Association, and is prominent in other public organizations.
