William T. Reed

William T. Reed, senior member of the law firm of Reed & Reed, was born near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, April 4, 1864.  When he was still a child of four his father went to Kansas, living first at Ottawa and then at Newton.

     Mr. Reed was graduated from the State University of Kansas with the class of '88, was admitted to the bar the following year, and practiced first at Newton.  But this was too small a town to hold a man of Mr. Reed's abilities.  In January, 1890, seeking a wider field, he moved to Kansas City Kas., where his brother and he built up a splendid reputation for the firm of Reed & Reed.  After five years across the river the firm was moved to Kansas City, Mo.

     Mr. Reed was married in April, 1892, to Miss Grace Peterson, of Akron, O.  There are two children, Marian and Grace.

     Mr. Reed recently attracted attention to his firm by an attack upon the packers' combine, a case that is still pending in the court.
