Edward Everett Porterfield
Judge Edward Everett Porterfield

Edward Everett Porterfield was born March 28, 1861, in Berkeley County, Virginia, and spent his boyhood days on a farm.  He attended a country school, and was graduated from Franklyn and Marshall College in 1883, having the degree of A.B. conferred upon him.  After leaving college, he decided upon the law for his profession, and entered the office of Henry Clay Douglas in Hagerstown, Md.  He was admitted to the bar in 1885, but did not hang out his shingle just then, first accepting a position as principal of the public schools in Hancock, Md.  He taught here for a year, and then came to Kansas City, where he began the practice of law.

     Mr. Porterfield married Miss Julia Chick, daughter of Joseph S. Chick, a pioneer citizen of Kansas City, and is the father of two children, Edward E., Jr., and Joseph Chick Porterfield.

     He is a Mason, an Odd-fellow, and belongs to the Legion of Honor and the Modern Woodmen of America.
