Morton Wollman

Morton Wollman was born in Leavenworth, Kansas, January 1, 1863, the son of Jonas Wollman, a pioneer merchant of that ancient town.  He went to the public and high schools of Leavenworth, and deciding against a college education entered the employ of his father.

     He remained in business in Leavenworth for five years, and then, anticipating the exodus to Kansas City, the Wollmans came to this place in 1888, where the family has ever since played a prominent part in the professional and business life of the town.

     Mr. Wollman went into business for himself soon after coming to Kansas City, dealing in wholesale general merchandise, and from a small beginning has built up a large and profitable business.

     Mr. Wollman is unmarried, and lives with his parents in a stately old house on the West Side.

     He is a member of the Knights of Pythias and is also an Elk and a Mason.

     He has ever been a believer in the future of Kansas City, and has denied neither time nor trouble in bringing about the growth and greatness of the town.
