Curtis, Charles, lawyer and United States senator, is a native of Kansas, having been horn in the city of Topeka on Jan. 25, 1860. He was educated in the public schools, studied law with A. H. Case, and in 1881, soon after reaching his majority, he was admitted to the bar. He then formed a partnership with Mr. Case which lasted until 1884, when Mr. Curtis was elected county attorney of Shawnee county. On Nov. 27, 1884, he married Miss Annie E. Baird of Topeka. At the close of his first term as city attorney in 1886 he was reëlected for a second term of two years. In 1892 he was nominated by the Republicans of the Fourth Congressional district for Congress, and in November was elected. He was twice reëlected from that district, and when in 1898 Shawnee county was made a part of the First district he was again elected to Congress and served ten years as the representative of the First, with the exception of a portion of his last term, when he resigned to accept an election as United States senator in Jan., 1907, both for the unexpired term of Joseph R. Burton and for a full term of six years, which expires on March 3, 1913.
