Arlon B. Crum, lawyer, a prominent member of the bar and city attorney of Lyndon, was born in Osage county, Kansas, Aug. 20, 1874, the son of Thomas J. and Mary J. (Barnes) Crum. His father was born and reared in Scott county, Indiana, where he attended the schools provided by the sturdy pioneers who settled the frontier. When the call came for volunteers at the outbreak of the Civil war he enlisted in the Twenty-second Indiana and served until mustered out of the service after the war was over. Like so many young men of that day Mr. Crum determined to seek his fortunes in the West and came to Kansas in 1873. For a number of years he was engaged in the mercantile business at Quenemo but gave it up to become a banker and still devotes his time to banking.

A. B. Crum received his elementary education in the public schools and after graduating from the high school determined upon a professional career. He entered the law department of the University of Kansas, at Lawrence, where he graduated in 1897. After looking around he decided to locate at Lyndon and opened an office there the same year. In 1898 Mr. Crum was elected county attorney of Osage county and served eight years in that capacity. He has built up a good practice and is regarded as one of the rising men of his profession.

In 1902 Mr. Crum married Alice Olcott, and four children have been born to this union, two boys and two girls. Mr. Crum is a Thirty-second degree Mason and belongs to the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks.
