William T. Jamison

William T. Jamison was born in Washington County, Pennsylvania, November 16, 1858, living on a farm in his boyhood and attending district school.  He went to Washington and Jefferson College, and was graduated from the University of Michigan Law School in 1884.  Following graduation, he taught school five years, and then began the practice of law at Wheeling, W. Va.

     It was April 6, 1886, that he came to Kansas City and entered the law office of L. C. Slavens, four years later becoming a member of the firm of Slavens, Spottwood & Jamison.  This partnership continued until January, 1895, when Mr. Jamison was elected Prosecuting Attorney of Jackson County by the Republicans.  In 1894 he represented the Seventh Ward in the lower house of the Council, was Speaker of the House, resigning that position to become Prosecuting Attorney.

     Mr. Jamison was married February 17, 1886, to Miss Anna M. Whitely.  They have one son, Howard L., fourteen years old.
