John Levi Hunt, of Topeka, was born in Chicago, Ill., Feb. 22, 1869. His father, Homer Conkey Hunt, was a native of the State of New York, born in Lewis county, Jan. 29, 1829, son of Levi Hunt, who was a descendant of an old Massachusetts family, prominent during the war of the Revolution. Homer Conkey Hunt was engaged during the greater part of his life in the railway supply business, in Chicago, and made his residence at Evanston, a suburb of that city, where he died Dec. 28, 1909. His wife, Ann Gleed Hunt, was born in England, Jan. 5, 1828, daughter of Rev. John Gleed, a Congregational minister, who came to America with his family in 1832, settled first in Canada, and two years later removed to the State of Vermont, where he thereafter resided. Mrs. Hunt is yet living, at the age of eighty-two years, and makes her home at Evanston, with her three daughters—Elizabeth Roxanna, Jessie, and Caroline Louisa.

John Levi Hunt is the youngest child and only son in a family of six children, four of whom are living. His residence in Kansas began in 1897, when he made his home at Topeka and began the practice of law, a profession in which he had gained a thorough training in his native state. At Evanston he had all the educational advantages of a university town. After attending the public schools he entered the Northwestern University for the study of law. In 1895 he was graduated in the law department of that institution and immediately thereafter was admitted to the bar at Springfield, the state capital. The two years which intervened between his admittance to practice and the date of his coming to Kansas were spent in the law offices of Peck, Miller & Starr, one of the most prominent law firms of Chicago. At Topeka his professional career has been marked with unusual success. He is at present a partner of Gleed, Hunt, Palmer & Gleed, widely known as one of the leading law firms of the State of Kansas. He is a member of the Shawnee County and the Kansas State bar associations, the Commercial Club of Topeka, and of the Elks fraternity.

On March 22, 1906, Mr. Hunt was married to Miss Minnie S. Staily. She is a native of St. Louis, Mo., born Nov. 25, 1879.
