John Thomas Harding

John Thomas Harding was born in St. Louis, Missouri, November 15, 1866.  His boyhood days, however, were passed in Nevada, Missouri, where he grew to manhood.  He attended the public schools, and then took a course at the Southwest Normal School in Fort Scott, Kansas, after which he entered the University of Missouri's law department.  He was graduated in 1888, and being admitted to the bar at once began the practice of his profession in Nevada.

     Always an enthusiastic Democrat and a public spirited man, Mr. Harding served terms as Prosecuting Attorney of Vernon County and City Counselor of Nevada during his residence there.

     In 1900 he came to Kansas City, where he has since lived.  He is a member of the local Bar Association, is a Mason, a Knight Templar, a Shriner, and a member of the Beta Theta Pi Fraternity.

     He was married in 1891 to Miss Joel Atkinson, and they have one child, Patti, born in 1893.
