William Moore

William Moore was born in Bloomington, Illinois, April 3, 1867.  He received his early education in the public and high schools of his native town, and after completing the latter course entered St. Vincent's College at Cape Girardeau, Missouri.

     Deciding upon the profession of law, Mr. Moore entered the law department of the Illinois Western University at Bloomington in 1891, and was given his degree in 1894.

     Soon after receiving his sheepskin, Mr. Moore came to Kansas City, where he was admitted to the bar, and where he has ever since remained.  Unlike the majority of young lawyers, Mr. Moore has never made himself part of a firm, or identified himself with any corporation or large office, but has practiced his profession alone.

     He has had a very successful career, and has thoroughly identified himself with the public life of Kansas City.  He is active in all movements tending to the general good, and has likewise  interested himself actively in Democratic politics, although he has never been a seeker after office.

     Mr. Moore is a member of the Knights of Columbus, one of the organizers of the local body, in fact.  He is also a leading spirit in the Marquette Club, and belongs to the Kansas City Bar Association.
