Thomas Jefferson Seehorn

Thomas Jefferson Seehorn was born April 18. 1863, in Fall Creek, Illinois.  He spent his boyhood on the farm, attending the district schools in winter, and finished his academic education at Chaddock College, Quincy, Ill.

     He then accepted a position as teacher in the college, then being but twenty-two years old.  For two years he studied law, and after his admittance to the bar, first practiced in Quincy.

     He came to Kansas City in 1887, and allied himself with the late Blake Woodson, the partnership continuing until 1897.

     In 1892 Mr. Seehorn was elected Public Administrator, and re-elected in 1896.  His record stands as a marvel of honesty and efficiency.

     He has always been an active worker in the Democratic ranks, and has at various times served as secretary of the County and City Committees.

     He is an Elk and a Knight of Pythias.
