Frank Carr Spalding was born in Kansas City, Missouri, November 2, 1869, and has lived his whole life here in the place of his birth.  His early education was received in the ward schools, after which he attended the Central High School, and from there entered the University of Michigan.

     Returning to Kansas City, he identified himself with Spalding's Commercial College, conducted by his father, where he has ever since remained.  Commencing at the bottom, he taught in all the various commercial departments, and is now assistant superintendent, and is in charge of the office.  He is also manager of the printing and publishing establishment operated in connection with the college.
