Frederick Sterling Doggett

Frederick Sterling Doggett was born in Chicago March 1, 1856.  He received his early education in the public schools, and later attended the Chicago University.  After emerging from the latter institution at the age of seventeen, he entered the laboratory of the 'Chicago Sheffield Steel company, where he remained for three years.  He then migrated to Colorado, and for four   years was engaged in mining and kindred industries.  

     In 1878 Mr. Doggett came to Kansas City, and secured employment in the Union Pacific offices, and a year later went over  to the Chicago & Alton road, just built.  When he left the C. & A.'s employ in 1886 he had risen to the position of general western freight agent.

     Since 1886 Mr. Doggett has devoted himself to his own business affairs, principally the management of the Blossom House, having married a daughter of the late G. H. Blossom.

     A very busy man, Mr. Doggett has always given freely of his time to public movements.  He was one of the first members of the Commercial Club, and has served as vice-president of that organization.  He was also a moving spirit in the organization of the Kansas City Club, and was its president for a term.  He was elected a director of Convention Hall in 1900 and re-elected in 1901, and is a leader in the Priests of Pallas Association.  He is a thirty-second degree Mason, a Knight Templar, and a Shriner.
