Robert Jay Ingraham

Robert Jay Ingraham was born in 1864 in Coshocton, Ohio, but has nobly lived it down.

     After going through the public and high schools of Coshocton, he came to Kansas City in 1884, and went into the office of C. O. Tichenor, where he read law for two years under the tutelage of that able jurist.

     He was admitted to the bar in 1886, and remained with Mr. Tichenor until 1889, when the law firm of Teasdale, Ingraham & Cowherd was organized.  Mr. Cowherd was first elected Mayor, then Congressman.  In 1901 Mr. Teasdale was made Circuit Judge, and in 1902 Mr. Ingraham was appointed City Counselor by Mayor Reed.  It is really his first political office, unless one counts his terms as  Mayor and City Counselor of Westport before its consolidation with Kansas City.

     He has been a life-long Democrat, and plays an important part in ever political campaign, although never putting party above public welfare.

     He was married to Miss Margaret Nelon, of Lawrence, Kas., and the marriage has been blessed with two children, Margaret and Robert James.
