Arnott R. Lamb of Coffeyville, an able and prominent member of the Montgomery county bar, bears the distinction of being a native Kansan, having been born in Toronto, Woodson county, Dec. 8, 1887. He is a son of Giles H. and Bessie (Shipp) Lamb, both of whom are natives of Warren county, Indiana, where the former was born Feb. 22, 1859. Both parents were reared in Indiana and were married there prior to their coming to Kansas in 1882. They first located on a farm near Toronto, but later removed to the town of Toronto, where the father of Mr. Lamb was principal of the public schools for about three years. The senior Mr. Lamb took up the study of law, was admitted to the bar, and, later was elected county attorney of Woodson county, after which he removed to Yates Center, the county seat of Woodson county, where he has continued to reside to the present time (1911). He has gained an enviable reputation in the legal profession and in politics. In 1897 he was elected state senator as the Republican candidate, and as a law maker won the respect and admiration of his constituents and of the general public.

Arnott R. Lamb was reared at Yates Center and there received his early scholastic training. He was graduated in the Yates Center High School at the age of sixteen, and when seventeen years of age he became a teacher in the schools at Piqua, Kan. He then entered the law department of the University of Kansas, at Lawrence, where he was graduated in 1908. After his admission to the bar in that same year Mr. Lamb located at Coffeyville, Kan., where he has steadily advanced toward the front in his profession. In politics he is a stanch Republican and, in 1910, was elected judge of the Coffeyville city court to serve for a term of two years.

In 1909 Mr. Lamb was united in marriage with Miss May Davis of Parsons, a granddaughter of J. W. Peak, a well known citizen of Parsons, Kan.
