Frank P. Walsh
Frank P. Walsh

Frank P. Walsh was born in St. Louis, Missouri, July 20, 1864, and came to Kansas City to reside upon attaining his majority.

     He left school at the age of ten years, beginning the struggle for existence as a telegraph messenger boy in his native city.  He educated himself as a stenographer, and was an expert in that line when admitted to the bar in 1889.

     His study of law, by the way, was carried on in the office of Gardiner Lathrop and as a lawyer he sprang at once into prominence, and now ranks at the very head of the Missouri bar.  He is an attractive and forcible public speaker.

     Mr. Walsh was married in 1891 to Miss Katherine O'Flaherty, of Kansas City.  They have five children, Katherine Marie, Sarah Louise, Cecilia, Frank P., Jr., and John Frederick.

     Mr. Walsh is a member of the Commercial Club, and has always been active in every movement for the advancement of municipal interests.
