Arthur Chandler Coates

Arthur Chandler Coates was born August 17, 1864, in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania.  He is a Kansas Cityan born and bred to all intents and purposes, however, for his father, Kersey Coates, came to Kansas City, then Westport Landing, in 1854, and few names are more indissolubly linked with the growth and greatness of the town.

     The subject of this sketch attended the local schools, and then prepared for college at Phillips' Academy, Andover, Mass, and then entered Yale.
     He was graduated in 1885, and studied law, but never practiced his profession, as the management of the Coates House devolved upon him.  From 1889 to 1900 he managed the house established by his father, and in the latter year accepted the general agency of the Prudential Life Insurance Company at this point.

     Mr. Coates was one of the founders of the University Club.  He was married in June, 1888, to Miss Isabel Doggett, and is the father of two children, Gladys and May.
