Henry G. Kyle was born September 20, 1872, in Bates
County, Missouri. His first years were spent on a farm. He
attended William Jewell College for six years, graduating in
1897. Then he took a two-year law course at the University of
Kansas, from which he was graduated in 1899. That same year he
was admitted to the bar, and came to Kansas City. His connection
with several important murder trials as counsel for the defense has
given him a reputation as a criminal lawyer.
Mr. Kyle represented the Kansas Law School at
the State Bar Association meeting at Topeka in 1899.
Since coming to Kansas City he has identified
himself actively with the workers in the Republican party.
