Edward E. Hedges has built up an extensive and profitable business as proprietor of the Bartlesville Decorating Company of Bartlesville, which he established in 1909 and has successfully conducted throughout the intervening period of twelve years. His birth occurred in Weston, Missouri, on the 15th of June, 1890, his parents being William and Jennie (Bammer) Hedges, who now make their home in Leavenworth, Kansas. He obtained his education in the public schools, passing through consecutive grades to his graduation from the high school, and on leaving his native state he made his way to Leavenworth, Kansas, but a year later came to Oklahoma, taking up his abode in Bartlesville, where he has resided to the present time.

It was in 1909 that he established the Bartlesville Decorating Company, of which he has remained proprietor, developing the business to large and lucrative proportions. He does both interior and exterior decorating, has a patronage which extends throughout Oklahoma and Kansas and furnishes employment to twenty-five men. His entire attention is devoted to the conduct of the business, which amounts to sixty-five thousand dollars annually, and he has a store which would be a credit to a city of much larger size than Bartlesville, his stock being valued at twenty-five thousand dollars.

In 1912 Mr. Hedges was united in marriage to Miss Frances Rowe, a native of St. Louis, Missouri. In fraternal circles he is well known as a Mason and an Elk and in social circles has become popular by reason of a genial disposition and an unfeigned cordiality. A young man of enterprise, ambition and energy, he has already won a gratifying measure of success for one of his years and his many friends feel no hesitancy in predicting for him a future-of continued prosperity.
