George J. Miller

George J. Miller was born in Pleasant Mill, Missouri, October 21, 1868.  The son of a Presbyterian divine, compelled by his calling to often change his place of residence, the subject of this sketch divided his boyhood among the towns of Pleasant Hill, Oregon, St. Joseph, and Nevada.

     After being graduated from the High School in Nevada he entered Westminster College at Fulton, from where he was graduated in 1890.  During the course there Mr. Miller won the oratorical prize and had the honor of representing his college in the State oratorical contest.

     After leaving college Mr. Miller came to Kansas City, and entered the office of Gates & Wallace, where he studied law.  In 1893 he was admitted to the bar, and at once commenced the practice of his profession.

     In 1899 Mr. Miller decided to quit the law, and became a financial agent, and has built himself up a large general brokerage business.

     He is a Democrat in politics, and while never a seeker after office has taken the stump in several campaigns.

     He is unmarried, and belongs to the Kansas City Athletic Club and the Phi Delta Theta Fraternity.
