John Cutler Gage

John Cutler Gage, a prominent member of the Kansas City bar, was born April 20, 1835, at Pelham, New Hampshire.  His childhood days were spent upon a farm, and he was educated at Phillips Academy, Dartmouth College, and Harvard College, from which he was graduated in 1856.  He was admitted to the bar in Boston, and in 1858 came to Kansas City, becoming one of the pioneers in the legal profession here.
     In 1870 Sanford B. Ladd became his partner, and in 1878 Chas. E. Small, forming the firm of Gage, Ladd & Small.  These men are all noted lawyers.
