Fred S. Bullene

Fred S. Bullene was born in Kansas City August 23, 1864, the son of the late T. B. Bullene, on of Kansas City's early Mayors, and a pioneer merchant, who did as much as any one man to make this town what it is to-day.

     The subject of this sketch went to the local schools, and later entered Phillips' Academy at Andover, Mass., where he prepared for Yale.  He was graduated from Yale in 1885, and at once returned to Kansas City.  His first position was with the National Bank of Kansas City, and, commencing in a rather humble capacity, he was made receiving teller after three years.  He was with the bank for seven years, all told, and then Mr. Bullene, tired of commercial life, entered the newspaper field, for which he had always held a fondness.

     His first position was on the reportorial staff of the Times, where he remained for two years.  He then went over to the Journal, where he stayed for one year, and then he accepted a position with the Star in 1897, and has remained with that paper ever since.

     He was nominated by the Republicans for County Clerk in 1902, and, wile defeated by the Democratic landslide, ran ahead of his ticket.
