George Logan Walls

George Logan Walls was born in Warsaw, Missouri, December 29, 1858.  He was educated at the public schools of Warsaw and at the Ohio University.  He then took a course in the Cincinnati Law School, and close application to his studies brought on a pulmonary complaint.  He went out to California, where he remained for four years, returning to Warsaw with his old-time health and vigor.

     He hung out his shingle, and practiced law there in Warsaw until 1888, when he came to Kansas City.  He practiced here until 1894, when he was nominated for Justice of the Peace by the Republicans, and triumphantly elected.

     Such has been his record that Democrats and Republicans have united to continue him in office ever since.

     One of his best deeds has been to straighten out the tough North End element, and bring law and order into that portion of the community where before was chaos.

     Mr. Walls has always been a strong Republican, and has been prominently mentioned in connection with the party nomination for Mayor.

     He married Miss Annetta Jones, of Kansas City, in 1887, and is the father of two children, Katherine and Hildegarde.
