Broadhead was a partner in the law firm of Broadhead, Slayback & Haeussler in St. Louis, Missouri. Alonzo Slayback criticized the conduct of Broadhead in an editorial in the Post Dispatch, a leading St. Louis newspaper. Nine years later, Broadhead was selected to be a candidate for Congress by the same interests that the Post Dispatch had long fought. The affair escalated into a personal feud between editor John Cockerill & partner Slayback, resulting in Slayback being shot in the law office by Cockerill. (bio by: Connie Nisinger)
