Prefatory Note.

     This book was compiled to supply the demand for a standard volume of facts concerning men of prominence in Kansas City.  No such book has appeared since Col. Theodore Case issued his "History of Kansas City," twenty years ago.  The need of a reliable work of this kind has long been felt, especially by the newspapers, whose only resource in case of an emergency is to a book which contains few of the present generation.

     Necessarily the names of many desirous of appearing in the compilation have been omitted because not deemed by the editors of sufficient prominence.  The effort has been to include, so far as possible, all those in whom the general public is interested.  It was the idea of the compilers to make a book that would be a standard volume to be used by newspapers and libraries.
