Theodoric Boulware Wallace

Theodoric Boulware Wallace was born in Jackson County, Missouri April 16, 1860, the son of the Rev. J. W. Wallace, a Presbyterian minister.  He spent his boyhood days on a farm, and received his early education in the district schools, later entering Westminster College, Fulton, Mo.  He was graduated from there in 1880, and deciding upon law as a profession enrolled himself as a student in the St. Louis Law School, receiving his degree in 1883.  He taught school for a while in the St. Louis University, and then went to Madison, Wis., to take a place as digester in a legal publishing house.

     Mr. Wallace came to Kansas City in 1886, where he has ever since practiced his profession.  He is a member of the firm Wallace, Wallace & Culbertson.

     In 1896 he was appointed receiver of the Missouri National Bank, a very complete failure.  Within five years his energy and ability brought order out of chaos, and where nothing was expected at the outset, dollar for dollar was paid back.

     Mr. Wallace belongs to no clubs or orders, but is a member of the Beta Thi Pi and Phi Delta Thi Fraternities.

     He was married in 1893 to Miss Myra Gates, of Independence, and they have two children, John and Helen.
