Henry Wollman

Henry Wollman was born in Leavenworth, Kansas, and his early education was received in the public and high schools of that town.  He then studied the classics under tutors, and, entering the law department at Ann Arbor, was graduated with high honors.  Returning to Leavenworth, he served as First Assistant City Counselor for nearly a year before attaining his majority.

     In 1881 he came to Kansas City, and at once took his place in the first rank in his profession.  He was appointed U. S. Commissioner, and for a short time acted as Circuit Judge under a temporary election of the bar.

     In 1899 Mr. Wollman removed to New York, where he has won fame and fortune, but he still retains a home interest in Kansas City, where his parents still live.

     Mr. Wollman not only enjoys repute as a lawyer, but as a writer and lecturer.  He has contributed articles on economic questions to all the leading reviews and New York papers, and while in Kansas City lectured before the universities of Kansas, Missouri, and Nebraska.

     For three years Mr. Wollman was president of the Southwestern Alumni Association of the University of Michigan, and is a prominent member of the Phi Delta Phi Fraternity.  He also belongs to the Missouri Club in New York, the American Bar Association, the Lawyers' Club, the Medico-Legal Society, and the Society of Medical Jurisprudence.
