William Edmund Sullivan

William Edmund Sullivan was born in St. Louis, Missouri, May 14, 1869.  His parents removed to Kansas City when he was still a child in arms, so that he is a born and bred Kansas Cityan to all intents and purposes.
     He attended the public schools of this city, and after attending the high school entered the Notre Dame University, from which institution he was graduated in 1887.
     Upon his return to Kansas City he was appointed to a deputyship in the City Clerk's office.  Such was his efficiency that he retained his political position from 1883 to 1896, watching Mayors come and go.
     In 1896 he formed the Globe Storage and Transfer Company, of which he is the president and general manager.
     So greatly has the firm prospered under his management that it has been found necessary to erect a large brick building at the corner of Seventeenth and Main Streets.
