John H. Lucas

John H. Lucas was born in Danville, Kentucky, February 8. 1852.  He attended the public schools and then took a course in Center College.  Deciding upon the profession of law, he entered an office in Harrodsburg, Ky., and was admitted to the bar in Kentucky in 1871.  The same year he came out to Missouri, and located in Osceola, and was admitted to the bar in this State in 1872.

     It was in 1879 that Mr. Lucas established an office in Kansas City in partnership with W. T. Johnson, and the firm of Johnson & Lucas has continued ever since.  While the majority of his time is spent in Kansas City, Mr. Lucas still retains his residence in Osceola.

     He is general attorney for the Metropolitan Street Railway, and attorney for the Frisco System, and has long been regarded as one of the leaders at the Missouri bar.
     Mr. Lucas married Miss Nannie Cardwell in Harrodsburg, Ky., in 1869, and they have four children, one boy and three girls.

     He belongs to the Knife and Fork Club, the Kansas City Bar Association, and is a Mason, a Knight Templar, and a Shriner.
