Frank Titus

Frank Titus, for many years a prominent figure among the lawyers of Kansas City, was born in Philadelphia in 1844.  He received a good classical education, and then selected the law as a profession.

     His studies were interrupted by the trumpet call, and enlisting as a soldier of the North, he fought for three years in the Army of the Potomac.

     Continuing his studies after his return from the battle field and camping ground, he soon qualified for admission to the bar.  Soon after his admission, Mr. Titus came out to Missouri, and located in St. Louis, for at that time St. Louis was "the" city of the State.

     He soon perceived the error of his ways, and moved to Kansas City, where he has ever since lived, a helpful figure in the public life of the town, and a popular one personally.  He belongs to both the local and State Bar Associations, and also to several clubs and public organizations.

     He is affiliated with one or two secret societies, and is a married man with a family.
