Henry L. McCune was born in Fulton County, Illinois, June 28, 1862.  His education was received in Illinois College at Jacksonville, where he went from 1877 to 1879, and afterwards at the University of Illinois, at Champagne, where he was graduated in 1883.

     Deciding upon the profession of law, he entered the Columbia Law School, and received his degree in 1886.  His shingle was first flung to the breeze in Oswego, Kas., but after four years of successful practice there he came to Kansas City in 1890, and has since occupied a prominent place in the town.  Until the death of Judge C. L. Dobson in 1902 he was junior member of the firm of Dodson & McCune, but is now alone.

     Mr. McCune has always been active in the public life of Kansas City along broad lines, and is now president of the Civic League, just commencing to be a power in municipal politics.  He belongs to the Commercial club, the University Club, and the Sigma Ki Fraternity.  He has also served a term as president of the Kansas City Bar Association.

     Mr. McCune married Miss Helen McCrary, daughter of United States Judge McCrary, in Colorado Springs September 6, 1888, and they have one son, Joseph.
