John Sullivan

John Sullivan, lawyer, Woodman, and Democrat, was born February 10, 1864, at Louisville, Kas.  His father, who was of Irish birth, was a prominent farmer and stock-raiser in Central Kansas, removing to that State from Connecticut in 1857.  His mother, a native of Wisconsin, was of German parentage.  His education was obtained in the common schools of Potawatomie County, Kansas and later at the State University at Lawrence, where he graduated in law in June 1887.  He is a member of the alumni of the Kansas State University.

     In 1887 Mr. Sullivan came to Kansas City to practice law, and he has occupied the same office for fourteen years, ten years of that period having been associated with Thomas M. Spofford.  Mr. Sullivan has always taken a great interest in politics, having campaigned the State several times, but he has never been a candidate for any political office.  He was appointed as a representative of the United States Treasury Department in the construction of the Kansas City Federal building, and he is proud of the distinction of having been the first man to be removed on the day following the election of William McKinley in 1896.  His offense in the eyes of the Cleveland administration was too great activity in campaigning on behalf of William Jennings Bryan.
