Vernon Day, of Anthony, Kans., a leading member of the Harper county bar, is a native of Harper county. He was born at Attica, Kans., March 3, 1885, and is a son of Thomas Lowery and Rebecca Frances (Dameron) Day. The parents of Thomas L. Day were natives of Kentucky, and were among the first settlers in Randolph county, Missouri, where Thomas L., was born, May 6, 1855. Both of his parents are now deceased. Thomas L. Day was the youngest of a large family, six of whom were boys. During the Civil war some of his brothers bore arms in defense of the Union, while others cast their lot with the "lost cause." His wife is also a native of Randolph county, Missouri, born June 3, 1861, a daughter of John and Jane Dameron, both now deceased. In 1884, Thomas L. Day came to Harper county, where for the past twenty years he has been successfully engaged in the real estate and loan business. As a Republican, he has been active in local politics, and has held various offices in the city of Attica. To Thomas L. and Frances Day were born four children, as follows: Ethel, born October 3, 1879, a graduate of the Attica High School, married John G. Kille, and died November 7, 1911; Roy, died in infancy; Vernon, the subject of this sketch, and Charles Newton, born April 11, 1888, graduated from the Attica High School in 1906, and later attended the University of Kansas. Vernon Day was educated in the public schools of Harper county, and is a graduate of the Washburn College School of Law, with the degree of Bachelor of Laws. He entered the office of the "Attica Independent" at an early age to learn the newspaper business, and shortly after became the editor of that paper, which he conducted about two years. He then did newspaper work in various places for a time, when he was appointed commission clerk in the office of the Secretary of State, at Topeka. He held this position for about three years; and in 1912 he returned to his home county to practice law, locating at the county seat. He is an able and energetic young lawyer, and has built up a good general practice. He has been employed in several cases in which there was considerable public interest, and is one of the capable and reliable lawyers of Harper county.
