Armwell L. Cooper

Armwell L. Cooper was born at Willow Grove, Delaware, November 15, 1870.  He began acquiring his education at an early age, and was a pupil at the Wilmington Conference Academy in Dover.  His family came West when he was rather young, and Mr. Cooper finished his education at the Kansas State Normal, Ft. Scott.

     He came to Kansas City in 1890, and soon afterwards entered a local law office.  He was admitted to the bar July 15, 1895, after which he entered the law office of Mr. Henry Wollman.  Mr. Wollman left the city for New York, and after his departure the firm of Wollman, Solomon & Cooper was formed, the individual member being Benjamin Wollman, brother to Henry Wollman, Henry C. Solomon, and Mr. Cooper.  During the few years that have elapsed since Mr. Cooper's admittance to the bar, he has taken rapid strides toward making a place for himself among the leading members of the local bar.

     He is a Democrat in politics, and is an officer in the leading Democratic club of the city, the Jackson County Democratic Club.  He belongs to the Knights of Pythias.
     Mr. Cooper is married, his wife being formerly Miss Caroline Ley, of this city.  Mr. and Mrs. Cooper have one child, a girl, named Dorothy Emily.
