Edward P. Gates

Edward P. Gates, lawyer and jurist, was born March 5, 1845, at Lunnenburgh, Vermont.  When he was five years old his parents moved to Illinois, where he received his early education.  He was graduated with the highest honors from Knox College, Galesburg, in 1867.  Meanwhile his parents had moved to Independence, Mo., and he came West to join them.  For a year he read law in the office of Comingo & Slover, and in 1868 was admitted to the bar.  In 1877 he formed a partnership with William H. Wallace, enduring for twenty years.

     In 1886 Judge Gates was County Counselor.  He was once pitted against Roscoe Conkling in the trial of a case.  At the election in 1896 Judge Gates was elevated to the Circuit bench.  The demands of a large and important law practice have not prevented Judge Gates from becoming well versed in literature.  His private library is one of the most complete in the city.

     Judge Gates was married November 4, 1886, to Miss Pattie Field Embrey, of Richmond, Ky.
