Clyde Taylor

Clyde Taylor was born at Wichita, Kansas, October 11, 1877, where he resided until 1888, when he came with his father's family to Kansas City.  At once, on his arrival at the age of eleven years, he began going to the public schools, attending first the Jefferson School and later graduating from the Central High School.   In 1900 his education was completed by his graduation from the University of Michigan.  The same year of his graduation he returned to Kansas City and entered the law office of Ben T. Hardin.  A year later, or in January, 1901, Mr. Taylor formed a partnership with Mr. Hardin. 

     He is a Republican in politics, and made several speeches in the recent campaign.
