Charles E. Hulett, of Fort Scott, Kan., one of the leading attorneys of Bourbon county, was born in Fort Scott, April 19, 1869, son of Hon. Edward M. and Theodosia (Ward) Hulett, the former born in Chemung county, New York, April 30, 1839, and the latter was a native of Louisiana. Edward Hulett received his collegiate education at Union College, Schenectady, N. Y., and graduated in the Albany Law School in 1861. From that time until 1865 he spent part of each year in New York City. During 1865 he spent some time in Fort Scott looking after his father's interests and was so imbued with the western spirit that, in 1867, he returned to Fort Scott and opened an office, where he carried on his professional work for some years. Having many business interests Mr. Hulett gradually gave up his law practice and devoted his attention to business. He was a Democrat, took an active part in local politics, and represented his district in the state legislature twice, being elected in 1867 and again in 1874. He was elected a delegate to the eight Democratic National Convention at Baltimore. Charles E. Hulett attended the high school at Fort Scott and the Presbyterian College at Emporia, Kan. He then went east and matriculated at Williams College, Williamstown, Mass., where he graduated with the class of 1893. On his return to Fort Scott he began to read law in his father's office and was admitted to the bar in 1895. He at once began to practice at Fort Scott. Mr. Hulett is a Democrat and was elected by that party to the state legislature in 1904. Although devoted to his chosen profession he is identified with many of the leading business interests of Fort Scott and is vice-president of the Fort Scott Building & Loan Association. He is a stanch supporter of his party, but is not bound by party ties in local issues or elections, as he believes in putting the best man in office, regardless of political affiliations. In 1896 Mr. Hulett married Mary, daughter of Charles Nelson, one of the prominent bankers of Fort Scott.
