Romulus E. Culver, attorney at law of St. Joseph, Missouri, was born in Plattsburg, this state, on the 12th of January, 1865, his parents being William L. and Augusta V. (McMichael) Culver. He acquired his education, after completing his public school course, in Central College at Fayette, Missouri, where he won his Bachelor of Philosophy degree in 1885, and in Vanderbilt University at Nashville, Tennessee, where the LL. B. degree was conferred upon him in 1887. Through the intervening period, covering more than a third of a century, he has continuously engaged in the practice of law and has won prominence and distinction in this field. He has served both as prosecuting attorney and as judge of the circuit court in Buchanan county, Missouri, and has made an equally creditable record as city counsellor of the city of St. Joseph, while during the World war period he acted as chairman of the legal advisory board of Buchanan county.

On the 21st of April, 1887, in St. Joseph, Mr. Culver was married to Miss Sara Judson, a daughter of Winslow Judson. The children of this marriage were three in number: Sara J., the wife of Donald C. Gaither, of Tampico, Mexico; John C.; and Frederick C.

In his political views Judge Culver has always been a democrat and the only offices which he has sought or filled have been those along the strict path of his profession. He is identified with all the various branches of Masonry and is also a member of the Country Club.
