Homer B. Mann was born at Chester, Illinois, June 16, 1869.  His father was a Presbyterian missionary, and the family came to Missouri.  Mr. Mann was a pupil at the public schools and afterwards attended the academy at Parkville, Mo.  Mr. Mann went up to North Dakota and settled.  He became the editor of the Minot Journal.

     His residence in this city began in 1894, at which time he became connected with the Drovers' Telegram.  Two years later Mayor James M. Jones made him Superintendent of Sidewalks and Curbing, because of his activity in local politics.  During his term in office he became the Republican nominee for Representative.  He was elected, and occupied a seat in the Fortieth General Assembly.  After the expiration of his term as Representative in 1898, he was re-appointed Superintendent of Sidewalks and Curbing.  In the spring of 1900 he became connected with the W. S. Dickey Clay Company, and a year later helped organize and became a member of the firm Trout & Mann in the fire and accident insurance business.

     Mr. Mann is secretary of the Republican City Committee, is affiliated with the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, and Venerable Counsel of the Modern Woodmen of America.
