Henry C. Solomon

Henry C. Solomon, Kansas City Attorney

Henry C. Solomon was born in Georgia in 1857, but spent his boyhood in Kansas, his parents having removed to that State when he was still an infant.

     After completing courses in the public and high schools, he attended college at Milwaukee, Wis., where he took a thorough four years' course.  He then entered Washington University at St. Louis, and was graduated from the law and literary department in 1877.

     He was admitted to the bar in Missouri but first swung his shingle to the breeze in Atchison, Kas.

     Carrying his Democracy with him from Georgia, Mr. Solomon flew his colors boldly in Republican Kansas, and served terms as City Attorney of Atchison and then Prosecuting Attorney.

     In 1894 he was nominated for Congress by the Democrats of that District, and came within a few votes of overcoming the large Republican majority.

     Mr. Solomon came to Kansas City in 1898, and became a member of the law firm Wollman, Solomon & Cooper.
