Walter S. Dickey

Walter S. Dickey, president of the W. S. Dickey Clay Manufacturing Company, is in the forefront of both business and politics in Kansas City.  He was reared in Toronto, Canada, where his first instruction was in the provincial "Model" school.  It was in January, 1885, that he came to Kansas City.  The very next year he served on the Republican City Committee.  From 1887 to 1898 he resided at Independence, Mo.    

 In 1900, having again established residence in Kansas City, he was elected as a delegate from the Fifth Congressional District to the Republican National Convention at Philadelphia, and was also honored by being selected as Missouri's member on the Vice-Presidential Notification Committee.  In July of 1902 he was elected a member-at-large of the State Republican Committee.

     Although Mr. Dickey has constantly taken an active part in politics, he has at the same time conducted one of the largest commercial enterprises carried on in the West.

     He is a charter member of the Commercial Club, and is one of the founders of the Manufacturers' Association.
