Stephen A. Mitchell

Stephen A. Mitchell, a civil engineer who has been connected with most of Kansas City's recent public works of importance, was born at Point Pleasant, Ohio, April 30, 1863.  He was still a small boy when his parents came with him to Kansas City, in whose excellent public schools he laid the foundation of his learning.  In 1878 he was graduated from the High School, and in 1883 received his diploma from the Missouri University.

     His first important piece of work after graduation was in the construction of the Kansas City Belt Line.  He was in the City Engineer's office from 1884 to 1885, when he resumed private practice until 1892, again accepting the position of Assistant City Engineer.  In 1900 he resigned and went into private business.

     He was one of the experts who examined the waterworks plant for Kansas City, and has supervised the construction of twenty different plants.
