ALBERT NEWMAN, vice president of The Drovers National Bank of Kansas City, Missouri, is a well known and prominent Kansan.

His birth occurred September 3, 1873, in Fall City, Nebraska, where he also received his primary education in the common schools. From Fall City the family removed to Fairbury, Nebraska, and thence to Omaha, and in 1894 to Topeka, Kansas.

In 1900 Mr. Newman became quite active in republican politics and served on the County Central Committee and was its secretary. In 1902 he was elected county clerk of Shawnee County and re-elected in 1904. In the spring of 1905 he resigned that office to become assistant postmaster of Topeka. This official service continued until 1908. He was secretary of the Charles Curtis Congressional Committee and when Mr. Curtis was first elected to the United States Senate was one of his campaign managers.

In 1908 Mr. Newman became cashier of the First National Bank of Logan, Kansas. During his connection with that bank he was also a director in the Kirwin State Bank of Kirwin, the German State Bank of Stuttgart, and the Farmers State Bank of Densmore, Kansas. He gave up all these connections to become a national bank examiner. That office in turn he resigned to accept his present one as vice president of the Drovers National Bank of Kansas City, Missouri.
