Biography of C. M. Scott, M. D.

Discover your family's story. Enter a grandparent's name to get started. Start Now In viewing the mass of mankind in the varied occupations of life, the conclusion is forced upon the observer that in the vast majority of cases men have sought employment not in the line of their peculiar fitness but in those fields where caprice or circumstances have placed them, thus explaining the reason of the failure of ninety-five per cent, of those who enter commercial and professional circles. In a few cases it seems that men with a peculiar fitness for a certain line have taken it up, and marked success has followed. Such is the fact in the case of the subject of this biography. Dr. Scott is one of the most capable physicians in his section of the state, and as proprietor of the Payette Valley Pharmacy, he has shown that he is endowed with that commercial instinct and foresight which enable one to enter into competitive business relations, and by the pursuit of honorable business methods gain prosperity.

Discover your family's story. Enter a grandparent's name to get started. Start Now Henry E. Dean came to Kansas in 1885 at the age of eighteen. Then and for a number of years afterwards he was a humble worker in the ranks of the industrial army. Success did not come to him like a lightning flash, but as a result of long, steady and painstaking effort. For the first two years he was employed on farms in Leavenworth and Franklin counties. On removing to Kansas City, Kansas, in 1887, he found a job as teamster for one of the packing plants. Making himself known as one who could be trusted, and diligent in the execution of his duties, he was given positions in the rising scale of importance and financial income, and eventually he became foreman in the curing department of Sulzberger & Sons’ packing house. A boyhood desire to become a lawyer had in the meantime crystalized into a set and fixed determination, and for several years, in addition to the duties of the day, he attended night school in the Kansas City School of Law. From that institution he was graduated June 10, 1900, and was admitted to the Missouri bar and soon afterwards to the Kansas bar. Even after his admission he felt that it was the wisest course to continue earning money in the old...
