Edward David Ellison

Edward David Ellison was born in Kansas City, December 5, 1869.  He first went to school at the Franklin ward school and then to the High School.  He was graduated from Princeton in 1892, and studied law in the office of C. O. Tichenor.  In September, 1893, he was admitted to the bar, and in May, 1895, the law firm of Ellison & Turpin was formed.

     Mr. Ellison was one of the founders of the Kansas City School of Law, which was started in 1895.  Under the supervision of Mr. Ellison and the other officers of the school it has made a remarkably rapid growth.

     Mr. Ellison was married December 5, 1894, to Miss Mary W. Stone, of Lawrence, Kas.  They have one child, Elizabeth, four years old.  David Ellison, father of Mr. Ellison, came to Kansas City from New York in 1866, and has made a notable success in the real estate business.
