Archibald David L. Hamilton

Archibald David L. Hamilton was born at Brampton, Ontario, November 16, 1860, and is of Irish descent.  His family moved to Toronto when he was twelve years of age, and his education was secured in the public schools of Brampton and Toronto.  At the end of his school life Mr. Hamilton went into the paper business, and has remained in it ever since.

     He came to the United States in 1885, when he went with the American Roll Paper Company and afterwards the Graham Paper Company.  He came to this town in 1891, for the latter company to take charge of the local branch.  Aside from his position as manager of the place, Mr. Hamilton has aided in many ways the plans ending to the upbuilding of Kansas City, and is affiliated with various associations having that end in view.

     He was one of the organizers of the original Karnival Krewe, and has been its secretary for a number of years, and was also a director in the Krewe.  He is also a member of the Commercial and Kansas City Driving Clubs, and a member and director of the Manucturers' Association.  Among the secret societies he is affiliated with are the Elks and Masons, he being a Scottish Rite and a Shriner.

     Mr. Hamilton was married in Toronto in 1886 to Miss Gammie.
