Frank Dillingham Merriam, vice-president of the Merriam Mortgage Company, of Topeka, is a native of New England, born at Johnson, Vt., Oct. 19, 1865. He is the eldest living son of Everett Brooks Merriam (see sketch). He was afforded the best educational advantages, graduated in the St. Johnsbury Academy, at St. Johnsbury, Vt., at the age of twenty and then, in 1888, came to Topeka with his parents. He at once matriculated in the law department of the University of Kansas and was graduated, in 1890, with the degree of Bachelor of Laws. His services were immediately enlisted by the firm of T. E. Bowman & Company, of Topeka, which firm was the predecessor of the Merriam Mortgage Company. He held that position five years and then, upon the organization of the Merriam Mortgage Company, was made its vice-president, which position he has since held.

Mr. Merriam was married, Aug. 18, 1909, to Katharine Gunther, daughter of Maj. Sebastian Gunther, of the United States army. By a former marriage he is the father of a daughter, Alice Thornton Merriam, now twelve years old. Mr. Merriam is widely connected with various social and fraternal organizations, being a member of the Topeka Club, the Country Club, the Elks Club, and the Commercial Club, all of Topeka; the Phi Gamma Delta and Phi Delta Phi college fraternities; and in line with his professional interests holds membership in the Shawnee County Bar Association and the Kansas State Bar Association. His religious views are expressed by membership in the Central Congregational Church.
