Andrew F. Evans

Andrew F. Evans was born in Kentucky in 1863.  His boyhood was passed on a farm, and his education was confined to such schooling as district schools afforded.  He afterwards attended St. Mary's College and later he took a classical course at Center College, Danville, Ky., from where he graduated in 1882.  Then he took up school-teaching reading law meanwhile, and was admitted to the bar in 1884.  Not satisfied with this, however, he determined to equip himself more thoroughly for the practice of the profession, and entered Harvard University for a year's course, and at its termination he went to the University of Virginia for one year more.  He engaged in practice in earnest in his home State for a year, but feeling that wider fields offered themselves in the West, he came to this town in 1887 and has remained her at his profession since.  He practiced alone for years, but later went in with N. B. Carskadon, the partnership being terminated only on the death of Mr. Carskadon.  Soon after this Mr. Evans took B. P. Finley into partnership with him, the firm name being Evans & Finley.

     Mr. Evans is a member of a number of fraternal and social organizations, among them being the Bar Association, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, the Knights of Pythias, and the Knife and Fork Club.  He was nominated by the Democratic party for Judge of the Circuit Court in 1902, and easily elected.
