Clarence I. Spellman

Clarence I. Spellman was born in Jacksonville, Illinois, February 25, 1874, and lived there until the removal of his parents to Kansas City in 1886.  His father was a Yankee, and his mother a Tennesseean, and to use his own happy phrasing he combines "the warmth and aggressiveness of the South, with the conservatism of the North."  Mr. Spellman was a pupil at the Woodland school, and from there went to the Central high school.  He was graduated from the latter institution in 1893, and then entered the University of Kansas.  He first took the classical course, and then switched to the law department, taking his degree in1897.  He came to Kansas City, and after some further preparation, was admitted to the bar in 1898.

     Mr. Spellman is generally regarded as one of the best of the younger lawyers, and has made himself a well-known figure by his activity in Republican politics.  In every campaign he has taken the stump, and is an attractive and forceful public speaker.  Until recently he has been alone in the practice of law, but is now officing with Mr. Edward Wright Taylor.  He is unmarried, and lives with his mother.
