Robert Brinsmade Middlebrook

Robert Brinsmade Middlebrook was born at Trumbull, Connecticut, September 3, 1855.  He went to school at Brookfield, Connecticut, and was graduated from the Yale law department in 1878.  It was in that year that Mr. Middlebrook came to Kansas City and formed the law partnership of Strong & Middlebrook.  Strong was elected City Attorney and the firm then became Hatch & Middlebrook.   In 1888 Mr. Middlebrook was appointed Assistant City Attorney and served one term.  In April, 1897, he was appointed City Counselor, and served two terms.

     Mr. Middlebrook's Republicanism dates far back, his ancestors having allied themselves successively with Federalist, Whig, and Republican parties.

     Mr. Middlebrook was married to Miss Louise Rutter at Toledo, Ohio, in 1884.  They have five children.
