Andrew E. Gallagher

Andrew E. Gallagher was born March 24, 1860, on a farm near Oswego, New York.  He attended the district school, and later on went to the State Normal School.  After his graduation he taught school for a couple of years, but in 1992 gave up pedagogy, and came to Kansas City, where he engaged in the real estate business.  He is now a member of the firm of Hicks & Gallagher.

     Always a Democrat, Mr. Gallagher has taken a leading part in politics ever since coming to Kansas City, having served for ten years as a member of the Democratic County Committee.  He is now chairman of the County Committee, and his conduct of the recent campaign was largely responsible for the brilliant Democratic victory.
     In 1902 he was appointed City Comptroller by Mayor Reed, the place being the first political office ever held by him.

     He was married June 12, 1887, to Miss Kittie Burns, of Oswego, N. Y.  They have five children, Burns, Grace, Harry, Laura, and Louise.

     Mr. Gallagher is a Modern Woodman, and a prominent figure in the public life of the town.
