Mayor Thomas T. Crittenden, Jr. ~ Click Here for Old News Items

Thomas T. Crittenden, Jr., was born in Sangamon County, Illinois, December 23, 1863, his family moving some few years later to Warrensburg, Mo., where his boyhood was spent.  He graduated from the public schools of that city and from the State University in 1883.  He came to Kansas City in 1884, going into the real estate business soon after his arrival, and worked at the business three years, when he was appointed Deputy Clerk of the Court of Appeals.  He was the Democratic nominee for County Clerk in 1894, was elected, and was again nominated and elected to the same office at the close of his first term in 1898, each time carrying both city and county by handsome majorities.  He is now being mentioned as Democracy's candidate for Secretary of State.  Aside from politics, Mr. Crittenden is interested in a number of business enterprises, all of which are successful.  He is purely of the fighting temperament when personal interests or those of his friends are assailed, yet it is all tempered by a fine quality of justice that renders enmities scarce.
     Mr. Crittenden was married January 5, 1888, to Miss Jennie Mason Rogers, whose father was a former president of Christian College, Columbia, Mo.  They have two children, a son, Joseph R., and a daughter, Mason A., their ages being five and two years respectfully.
