Biography of Guy Patten

Guy Patten, Mayor of Vinita, is also well known in other connections, being an extensive oil operator and one of the leading agriculturists and stock raisers of northeastern Oklahoma, and in every line of activity to which he has directed his attention he has gained a position of leadership through his ability and tireless energy, which never falls short of the attainment of its purpose. He was born at Keokuk, Iowa, on the 11th of January, 1883, and is a son of F. P. and Emma (Richmond) Patten, both natives of Illinois. The father has devoted his entire life to agricultural pursuits, first following that occupation in Iowa, after which he removed to Illinois, locating near the city of St. Louis, Missouri, and in 1904 he came to Oklahoma. He is now operating a farm near Chelsea and the mother also survives. In the acquirement of an education Guy Patten attended the grammar schools of Pike County, Illinois, and the high schools at Baylis and Barry, that state, after which he engaged in teaching for a time. He then entered the law school of Grant University at Chattanooga, Tennessee, through which he worked his way, receiving the LL. B. degree in 1904, and this was followed by a year’s postgraduate work at Yale. Thus well qualified for the work of his profession, he came to Vinita and opened an...

Biography of Charles Rudolph Nesbitt

Although one of the younger representatives of the legal fraternity of Miami, his years seem no bar to the progress of Charles Rudolph Nesbitt, who has already attained a clientele and a reputation that many an older practitioner might well envy. He was born at Colony, Kansas, May 24, 1892, his parents being Frank W. and Mary (Halley) Nesbitt, both natives of Ohio. They removed from that state to Kansas, in which the father followed the occupation of farming. In religious faith he was a Methodist and his demise occurred in 1892. The youngest in a family of five children, Charles R. Nesbitt attended the grammar schools of his native city and the high school at Garnett, Kansas. In 1907 he entered the University of Kansas, which conferred upon him the Bachelor of Arts degree in 1911, while in the following year he received the M. A. degree, on the completion of a course in economics, winning a scholarship which gave him the privilege of attending Yale University. For two years he was a law student at that institution, which conferred upon him the master’s degree, and during that period he became a member of the Acacia Club. He continued his studies by a year’s attendance at the University of Wisconsin and while acquiring his legal training was connected with the state railroad commission. In 1916 he came to...
