B. F. Wollman, Kansas City Attorney.

Benjamin F. Wollman was born January 20, 1872, in Leavenworth, Kansas, and lived there until his parents moved to Kansas City in 1888.  He went to the public schools of Leavenworth, was graduated from the Central High School, in 1890, and then entered Ann Arbor.  He took a classical course, and was graduated from the law department in 1894.  He returned to Kansas City, and was junior member of the firm of Wollman & Wollman until the departure of his brother Henry to New York when the firm of Wollman, Solomon & Cooper was formed in 1899.

     Few young men lead busier lives, and have greater and more diversified interests than Mr. Wollman.

     He is a Mason, and holds the record for quick work in that organization, having gone from the first to the thirty-second degree in six weeks.  He is an officer in the Shrine, an Elk, a trustee in the Progress Club, a member of the Commercial Club, president of the Royal Brewing Company of Weston, Mo., and of the Egbert Tobacco Company, director and general attorney of the Manufacturers' Coal and Coke Co., director of Arkansas, Springfield & Northwestern Railroad, general attorney of Iowa & St. Louis Railroad, the Iowa & Dakota Central, and the Iowa & Missouri Railroad.

     Mr. Wollman is unmarried, and makes his home with his parents.
