Louis P. Rothschild was born in Leavenworth, Kansas, July 8 1864, and lived there until his removal to Kansas City in 1901.  He received his education in the public and high schools, and after completing the latter course entered the store of his father, Philip Rothschild, the pioneer merchant of the West.

     In 1901 the business was removed to Kansas City, and the subject of this sketch and his brother, Alfred, at once began a campaign of energy and idea, which has resulted in victory and success.

     In Leavenworth, Mr. Rothschild built the first independent telephone in that town, and was also the moving spirit in the organization of the Merchants' Electric Light Company.

     Since coming to Kansas City he has identified himself with the public life of the town, and is a member of the Commercial Club, and has also actively  participated in the Priests of Pallas movement and the Flower Show.

     Mr. Rothschild was married in 1899 to Miss Westheimer, of St. Joseph, and they have one son.
