Charles S. Curry

Charles S. Curry was born November 1, 1864, in Jefferson City, Missouri, the son of Dr. W. A. Curry, who came out to Missouri from Virginia in 1837, and did much to upbuild Jefferson City and develop Cole County.

     The subject of this sketch went to the public schools, and then learned the printer's trade, but after a time went down into Texas, where he remained in the cattle business for three years.

     His next business venture was with a hotel in Caldwell, Kas., but in 1885 he came to Kansas City, where he has since remained.  In 1887 the real estate firm Curry & Truitt was formed, and continued until 1894, when Mr. Curry was appointed City Clerk by Mayor Davis.  He also served in this position through the two administrations of Mayor Jones.  In 1902 a change of administration retired him, and he is now head of the real estate firm C. S. Curry & Co.

Mr. Curry has always been active in Republican politics, and has been secretary of the Congressional and City Committees at times.  He belongs to the Kansas City Club, the Driving Club, and is an Elk.  He married Miss Lulu Gordon, of Jefferson City, in 1887, and they have five children, three boys and two girls.
