Edward Everett Holmes

Edward Everett Holmes was born in West Winstead, Connecticut, December 29, 1849.  He attended the public and high schools of his native town, and also studied civil engineering.  His first occupation was as axeman in a railroad surveying crew, and he rose steadily until made division superintendent.  In 1873, when the panic stopped all building, he found himself in Muscatine, Ia.  He located there, and for two years worked as a book-keeper.  From that he worked into the real estate and mortgage business, in which he has continued ever since.  In 1879 he moved from Muscatine to Emporia, Kas., and in 1882 came to Kansas City.

     Mr. Holmes is second vice-president of the United States and Mexican Trust Company, which is engaged in securing the right of way for the Orient line, and is also director in several mining companies.  He is a man of intensest energy and application, and has been an important factor in the upbuilding of the town.

     Mr. Holmes is a member of the Evanston Golf Club.  He was married in 1873 to Miss Martha J. Hawley, of Muscatine, Ia., and they have one son, Albert.
