Edward Maitland Dart

Edward Maitland Dart was born in Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania, April 20, 1859.  His boyhood was spent in toil for until he entered his teens he was engaged in farm work or employed in the lumber camps.  He only went to school long enough to acquire the rudiments of an education, and after that he educated himself, studying at night.

     He went to Chicago in 1881, where his brother was in the live-stock business, and remained there for three years.  At the end of that time he came to Kansas City, and soon after his arrival went to work for the Western Newspaper Union, with which company he is still identified.

     He went to work as an assistant pressman, was promoted first to the position of shipping clerk, and was then taken to the office as correspondent and book-keeper.  In 1900 he was made manager of the local office, the position he now holds.  The Western Newspaper  Union supplies plate matter for the country newspapers, and also does general publication work.  Under Mr. Dart's management the territory has been doubled, and the capacity of the plant enlarged time after time.  Aside from his managerial duties, Mr. Dart's hobby is blooded stock, and he owns several farms in Missouri, Kansas, and Florida, where he indulges his fondness.
