Charles H. Kirshner

Charles H. Kirshner was born in Fostoria, Ohio, June 25, 1863.  He attended the public schools in that town, also the local academy, and later on took a classical course at Oberlin College.  From this institution he went to the Cincinnati Law School, receiving his degree in 1888.

     Mr. Kirshner first practiced his profession in Salina, Kansas, remaining in that town from 1888 to 1890, coming to Kansas City in the latter year.  For twelve months, he was connected in practice with the late Thomas Jones, and then officed alone until 1900, when he became junior member of the firm Beardsley, Gregory & Kirshner, an affiliation that still continues.

     Mr. Kirshner belongs to the University Club, is a Mason, and also belongs to the Knights of Pythias.  In addition, the various public movements have always elicited his energy and received his support.

     He was married in 1889 to Miss Agnes Fairchild, eldest daughter of Dr. George Fairchild, president of the Kansas State Agri-cultural College.  They have two children -- Charlotte, six years old, and Robert, aged two.
