John G. Schaich, Jr.

John G. Schaich, Jr., was born in Fort Wayne, Indiana, May 23, 1874.  His parents removed to Kansas when he was but five years old, however, and it was in that State that he grew to manhood.  His education was not very extensive, for he had to work for his living, but what he lacked in opportunity he mad up in ambition.  He attended the public schools in Lawrence, Kas., and worked as a messenger boy.

     He also worked on a farm, but always he kept the idea of an education and a profession before him.  In 1895 he had saved up enough to enter a law office in Kansas City, Kas., where he studied early and late for two years, and at the end of that time passed a splendid examination, and was admitted to the bar.

     He crossed the river and identified himself with the late John W. Beebe, and remained with him until that celebrated lawyer's death in 1899.

     He is now senior member of the law firm of Schaich and Fairman.

     Mr. Schaich is a member of the local Bar Association, and also belongs to the Modern Woodmen.

     He married Miss Smallwood, of Kansas City, Kas., in 1895.
