Edward Joseph Curtin

Edward Joseph Curtin was born in Independence, Missouri, August 9, 1875.  He spent his boyhood on a far, and his early education was secured in the district school.

     It was in 1889 that he came to Kansas City, and his education was completed by graduation from the ward schools.  His circumstances were such that he was compelled to go to work at an early age, but his ambition was not to be denied.  He studied at night, and finally deciding upon the law as his profession, became a pupil at the Kansas City School of Law.  He attended at night after his work for the day was over, and will be graduated the coming spring, when he expects to apply for admission to the bar.

     In 1902 City Counselor R. J. Ingraham recognizing his ability, and eager to further his progress, appointed Mr. Curtin claim agent in his department, which position he now holds.

     Mr. Curtin has always been active in Democratic politics, and is recognized as a young man with a future.  He is a member of the Kansas City Athletic Club, and several other organizations.
