John David Wendorff

John David Wendorff, Kansas City Attorney

John David Wendorff was born in Jefferson County, Kansas, September 27, 1864.  His boyhood was spent upon the farm, where he laid the foundation for the physical and intellectual vigor that place him easily in a class with the best of the younger lawyers of Kansas City.

     Mr. Wendorff was educated at the State University of Kansas at Lawrence.  He left there in 1886, and taught school for three years in Leavenworth County.  During the years 1889 and 1890 he attended the law school at Ann Arbor, Mich., and in February, 1891, he came to Kansas City, and entered the law office of McDougal & Robinson.  Later he became associated with the firm of McDougal & Sebree, where he now is.

     For two years Mr. Wendorff was an Assistant Prosecuting Attorney under Frank M. Lowe.

     He is a Mason, and a member of the Bar Association.
