Perry A. Schull

Perry A. Schull was born in Cedarville, Ohio, March 16, 1867, and spent his boyhood in that town.  His early education was secured in the public and high schools, and he also had the advantage of a classical course in Antioch College.

     At the age of eighteen he commenced to work for a living, and his first employment was in a clothing store in Xenia, O.

     In 1886 the firm of Wolf & Schull was organized, and a tailoring business carried on.  In 1898 Mr. Wolf sold out to Arthur Jelly, and the present firm of Schull & Jelly was organized.  The business has since been incorporated with a capital stock of $35,000, all paid in.

     In addition to their mercantile business, Mr. Schull and Mr. Jelly are also largely interested in local realty and building, and have prospered amazingly, besides doing much to aid in Kansas City's growth.

     Mr. Schull belongs to the Commercial Club, and is an Elk, a Mason, and an Odd Fellow.  He is a married man.
