Milton Jackson Oldham

Milton Jackson Oldham was born in Keytesville, Missouri.  Much of his early life was spent upon his father's farm, and after attendance at the district school he entered the high school at Keytesville.  He completed the course there, and then finished his education in the college at Stansbury, Mo.

     Upon completion of his academic studies, he came to Kansas City, and commenced the study of law in the offices of Gates & Wallace.  In 1892 he was admitted to the bar, and shortly after his admission he accepted a position in the City Counselor's office, where he remained until a change in the administration.  In 1896 Mr. Oldham became connected with the legal department of the Metropolitan Street Railway, which position he still holds.

     Mr. Oldham was attorney for the Retail Grocers' Association for many years, and is now attorney for the Depot Carriage and Baggage Company, and several other corporations.

     He is a member of the Bar Association and of the Knife and Fork Club.  As might be guessed from his name, Mr. Oldham is closely related to the great "Stonewall" Jackson, a family connection of which any man might be justly proud.
