S. E. Chamberlain

S. E. Chamberlain was born in Seneca County, Ohio, January 22, 1842.  He went to the public schools there, and his first trade was that of carpenter.  Thirty years ago Mr. Chamberlain started as an architect at Chicago, from which place he came to Kansas City in October, 1878.  He was the architect of the City Hall, and from 1889 to 1891 was superintendent of Buildings of Kansas City under Mayor Holmes.  Many of the handsomest residences of the city, as well as business structures, were planned by Mr. Chamberlain.
     Mr. Chamberlain is a Socialist and proud of it.  He was married to Miss Susan A. Correll at Niles, Mich., September 25, 1867, and has six children.
