Nathan Frank Frazier, Jr., capitalist and banker, resides in Eldorado, the city of his birth, where he was born March 13, 1882. He is a son of the late Nathan Frank Frazier and wife, who, prior to her marriage, was Miss Emma Crook. He was reared in his native town and there received his preparatory education in the public schools, then entered Lake Forest Academy, Lake Forest, Ill., from which institution he was graduated in 1903. After graduation he was employed at Kansas City, Mo., for a short time, and then returned to Eldorado, where he became associated with his father, and assisted him in handling the latter's extensive business interests. In 1905 he, with his father and brother, Ray F. Frazier acquired large oil properties in southeastern Kansas and Oklahoma, and organized several oil companies, with headquarters at Bartelsville, Okla. Our subject became an officer and director in these companies and still retains those interests, which have increased in value and have been very profitable. Mr. Frazier is a director and one of the largest stockholders in the Citizens' State Bank of Eldorado. He also has large holdings in farm and grazing lands in Kansas and Oklahoma, and owns and operates a farm comprising 1,000 acres, a few miles west of Eldorado, where he with Mr. Rainey are extensively breeding fine hogs, principally the registered Duroc stock. This farm includes in its acreage some of the richest bottom land in the state, equipped with the most modern improvements and in fact is one of the model farms of the state.
On Sept. 28, 1905, Mr. Frazier was united in marriage to Zona, daughter of Harry T. Brown, of Eldorado, and to their union has been born one daughter, Sarah Margaret, born Jan. 19, 1909. Mrs. Frazier comes from one of the best families of the state and is a prominent and popular participant of the social life of Eldorado. Her pleasant home is often the scene of gracious hospitality. Mr. Frazier is a prominent member of the different Masonic organizations, being a member of Patmos Lodge No. 79, Ancient Free and Accepted Masons; Eldorado Chapter Royal Arch Masons; a Scottish Rite Mason of Wichita Consistory No. 2, and a Noble of the Mystic Shrine, Midian temple, of Wichita. He is also a member of Wichita Lodge No. 427, Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks. Mr. Frazier has inherited much of his father's business acumen and ability, which added to the excellent training received from the latter in the direction of his large and varied interests, has well fitted him to carry forward the prestige which the Frazier family has attained as financiers in the commercial world.Pages 835-836 from volume III, part 2 of Kansas: a cyclopedia of state history, embracing events, institutions, industries, counties, cities, towns, prominent persons, etc. ... / with a supplementary volume devoted to selected personal history and reminiscence.
