Edward P. Moriarty

Edward P. Moriarty was born March 17, 1868, on a farm in Olmstead County, Minnesota, but is practically a Kansas City product, as his parents moved to this town in 1871.

     The subject of this sketch attended the public schools, and then entered Central High School, after which he secured a position with the old Citizens' National Bank.

     In 1895 Mr. Moriarty left the bank and went with the Whipple Loan and Trust Company.  His first place was in a mere clerical capacity, but he gave evidence of ability straightway, so that when he finally resigned it was from the office of treasurer.

     After leaving that company he organized the firm of E. P. Moriarty & Co. associating his brother, James F., with him, and doing business in sporting goods.

     Mr. Moriarty is an enthusiast over automobiles, and has done more than any other man to popularize the "horseless carriages" in Kansas City.  He was one of the organizers of the Automobile Club, and is a director.  His was the winner, by the way, of the blue ribbon in the 100-mile endurance contest, given under the club's direction.
