Sanford Burritt Ladd

Sanford Burritt Ladd, one of the foremost members of the bar and a lawyer of rare ability, was born at Milford, Michigan, September 11, 1844.  He was educated at the University of Michigan, and began the study of law under the Hon. G. V. N. Lothrop, of Detroit, afterwards Minister to Russia.

     Mr. Ladd was admitted to the bar in Michigan in 1868, and in the same year located at Kansas City.  The following year he formed a partnership with John C. Gage, into which Chas. E. Small was admitted in 1882, composing the well-known firm of Gage, Ladd, & Small.

     Mr. Ladd was president of the Kansas City Bar Association from 1892 to 1893, and his friends have urged him to make the race for the Supreme Bench on the Republican ticket.

     In 1870 Mr. Ladd was married to Miss Clara L. Fuller, the sweetheart of his college days, at Ann Arbor.  Mr. and Mrs. Ladd reside in one of the handsomest residences in Hyde Park.

     Mr. Ladd is noted at the bar for his clear, concise presentation of a case, demonstrating the possession of an analytical mind.
