Sam B. Strother

Sam B. Strother was born June 16, 1871, and was reared near Lee's Summit.  He attended the schools there and the Kansas City High School, afterwards going to the Missouri State University, from which he was graduated in 1893 in the law department.  When he finished school, Congressman W. S. Cowherd was Mayor of Kansas City, and Mr. Strother became his private secretary in place of James Black, who entered the law firm of Pratt, Dana & Black at that time.  At the close of Mayor Cowherd's term of office, Mr. Strother went into the law office of Teasdale, Ingraham & Cowherd, where he remained until his present firm was formed.

     Mr. Strother was married to Miss Maud Davenport at Lee's Summit.  They have one child, Isabelle, two years old.
