Frank Markward

Frank Markward was born in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, October 19, 1869, but as his parents moved to Warrensburg, Mo., in 1870, he is really a Missouri product.  Mr. Markwood received his education in the schools of Warrensburg, and at the age of sixteen came to Kansas City.

     Always fond of literary work, his fancy turned inevitably to journalism, and in 1888 he secured a position with the Kansas City Times, where he remained until 1898, when, in company with Will T. Stricklette, he founded the Kansas City Manufacturer, a paper devoted to the manufacturing interests of Kansas City.  Mr. Stricklette took charge of the business end, and Mr. Markward assumed the editorship, and his work has not only been responsible for the paper's success, but has also given impetus to local manufacturing interests.

     In 1901 the business was incorporated, and the name of the paper changed to the Manufacturer and Merchant, with a consequent broadening of its field of work.

     Mr. Markward belongs to the Manufacturers' Association, and has been a prominent figure in the movement tending to the erection of a club-house.
