Louis S. McClellan

Louis S. McClellan was born June 5, 1861, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  He received his education in the public and high schools of that town, and at an early age began to earn his own living.  His first employment was with a civil engineering corps on the Pennsylvania Railroad, but in 1881 he secured a position with the Wabash Railroad, and has been with that corporation ever since.

     He started in as a clerk in the New York office, and in 1884 was made southwestern passenger agent, which position he held until 1895, when he was removed to Louisville, where he held the office of district passenger agent.  In 1899 he was transferred to St. Louis in a similar capacity, and upon the resignation of Henry N. Garland as western passenger agent in 1902, Mr. McClellan came to Kansas City to succeed him.

     He has already taken his place in the public life of the town, and has identified himself with many of the public organizations.

     Mr. McClellan is a Scottish Rite Mason, a Knight Templar, and a member of the Shrine.
