Charles P. Duff

Charles P. Duff was born in Baltimore, Maryland, April 6, 1864.  He spent his boyhood in Springfield, Ill., however, his parents removing to that town when the young Charles was still a babe in arms.

     He received his education in the Springfield public schools, but had to quit books for work when only fourteen.  He secured employment in a furniture store, in which business he has ever since been.

     In his twenty-third year Mr. Duff moved to Arkansas City, Kas., where he went into the furniture business for himself.  He did very well, and it was while in Arkansas City that he associated himself with Mr. Repp, his present partner.

     In 1896 Mr. Duff came to Kansas City.  He became a stockholder in the time-honored J. H. North Furniture Company, and was elected vice-president.

     In 1900 the J. H. North Furniture Company ceased to be, and in its place sprang up the firm of Duff & Repp, which has ever since been a leader in its line.

     Mr. Duff is a married man, the father of two children, a son and a daughter.  He is a member of the Commercial Club, and director in the Kansas City Athletic Club.
