Edward Wright Taylor

Edward Wright Taylor was born in St. Cloud, Minnesota, June 4, 1863.  After attendance in the public schools in St. Cloud, his parents sent him to a Catholic seminary, where he remained during the years of 1877 and 1878.

     In the latter part of the 1878  he went to Germany, entering the gymnasium at Stuttgart, where he stayed until 1881.  He then studied at Leipsic, Goettingen, and Berlin, taking the degree of J.U.D. at Leipsic in 1894.  He then spent a year at the University of Paris, and returned to this country in 1885.

     He was admitted to the bar in St. Cloud in 1885, but did not remain there for any length of time, coming to Kansas City in 1886.  He was first in the office of Warner, Dean, Gibson & McLeod, but later formed a partnership with I. P. Ryland.  He is now, however, practicing alone.

     An active Democrat, he has ever taken an interest in political affairs, and despite his youth has been prominently mentioned in connection with the high office of Circuit Judge.
