Samuel Wallace Moore, Kansas City Attorney.

Samuel Wallace Moore was born January 24, 1862, in Geauga County, Ohio.  His parents removed to Cleveland O., when he was nine years old, and after going through the ward schools he entered the High School, from which he was graduated in 1879.  He then went to Mexico and Arizona, and by Clerical and other work earned money enough to take himself through college.  He attended Adelbert College in Cleveland, and was graduated in 1884.  He completed the three year course in two years by means of taking extra studies.

     He studied law at the Kansas University, taking his degree in 1877, and immediately afterwards came to Kansas City, and entered the law office of Lathrop & Smith.  In 1892 the firm of Lathrop, Morrow, Fox & Moore was organized, and continues still.

     Mr. Moore has served as president of the Knife and Fork Club, and was elected president of the Kansas City Bar Association in 1901.  He is a member of the Commercial Club, Country Club, and Kansas City Club.

     He married Miss Harriet Cooke in Kansas City September 30, 1896.
