William Augustus Reeder
Birth: Aug. 28, 1849
Death: Nov. 7, 1929

US Congressman. Born in Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, he moved to Ipava, Illinois and taught school (1863-71). He then moved to Beloit, Kansas, where he served as principal of the town's public schools (1871-79), moved to Logan, Kansas, in 1880 and engaged in banking, as well as in irrigation farming, (1891-99). In 1899, he was elected as a Republican to the Fifty-sixth Congress and to the next five succeeding Congresses, serving until 1911. An unsuccessful candidate for re-nomination, he relocated to Los Angeles, California, in 1913, where he engaged in banking and in the real estate business. He died at age 80 in Beverly Hills, California. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
