William Chick Scarritt

William Chick Scarritt was born March 31, 1861, in Kansas City, Missouri, his being a pioneer family.  He went to the public schools of the town, for it was not then a city, and then entered Central College at Fayette, Mo., from which he was graduated in 1881.  He decided upon law as a profession, and accordingly enrolled as a student in Boston University, and took his degree there in 1883.  He also studied law for a while in the office of his brother, Judge Edward L. Scarritt, with whom he was afterwards associated in the practice of his profession.  He is now a member of the law firm of Scarritt, Griffith, & Jones.

     Mr. Scarritt has always been interested in public matters, and in 1897 was appointed as member of the Board of Police Commissioners by Governor Stephens, but resigned before the expiration of his term. He is a member of the Commercial Club, the local Bar Association, and also belongs to the Evanston Golf Club.

     He was married to Miss Francis Davis, of Hannibal Mo., in 1884, and they have five children, William H., Frances M., Arthur Davis, Dorothy Anne, and Virginia.
