Samuel Sumner Winn

Samuel Sumner Winn was born in Liberty County, Georgia, July 25, 1858.  His father, a Presbyterian minister, moved from Georgia to Illinois early in the career of Mr. Winn in order to escape the evil surroundings of slavery.

     At Knox and Lake Forest Academies and at Boston University Mr. Winn acquired his education.

     He was admitted to the bar in Chicago in 1877, and began the practice of his profession in Peoria.  From Peoria he came to Kansas City in 1881.

     As Assistant City Counselor under Slavens and Middlebrook, Mr. Winn made in enviable record for himself gaining a knowledge of municipal law which few possess.

     Mr. Winn was married to Miss Helen O'Hara, of Cincinnati.
