Frederic B. Stanley, a successful lawyer of Wichita, is a native Kansan, having been born in Lawrence, Kan., April 25, 1874. He is a son of Edmund Stanley, a prominent educator of this state, and now president of the Friends' University at Wichita. He was reared at Lawrence and was graduated in the Lawrence High School at the age of seventeen. Entering the University of Kansas he spent the following three years in pursuit of his literary education, but completed his course in the liberal arts at Earlham College, Richmond, Ind, where he graduated in 1895, with the degree of Bachelor of Arts. He then spent one year in the law department of the University of Kansas, after which he completed his law studies at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, graduating in that institution in 1897, and thus completing three years of law study in two years—one year at the University of Kansas and one year at Ann Arbor. After a marked career as a student he spent one more year in preparation for the profession, in the law office of Beardsley & Gregory, at Kansas City, Mo., and then duly entered upon his independent career in law in 1899, becoming at that time the junior member of the law firm of Stanley & Stanley, at Wichita, his older brother, Claude C. Stanley, being his partner. Energetic and capable he has already won recognition as a legal advocate of strength, and in the succeeding years will no doubt win a place among the foremost of his profession in the state.

During his college days at Earlham Mr. Stanley formed the acquaintance of a classmate, Miss Ethelyn Stanley, of Richmond, Ind., who, though bearing the same surname, was no relation. Their acquaintance and association at Earlham culminated in their marriage, Oct. 31, 1899. Mr. Stanley is secretary of the Sedgwick County Bar Association, and a member of the Kansas Bar Association. He is a Republican in politics and served as city attorney of Wichita from 1907 to 1909. He is a member of both the Commercial Club and the Country Club of Wichita, and is a prominent figure in Wichita Masonic circles, being a Thirty-second degree Scottish Rite Mason and a Noble of the Mystic Shrine. He also affiliates fraternally with the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, and is a member of the Friends' church.
