ROBERT C. FOULSTON, while one of the younger members of the Wichita bar, has made a name for himself by the able manner in which he has handled some important cases, and he has also been retained in the interests of the city government in a number of important trials.
A native of Kansas, born at Leoti, Robert C. Foulson[sic] started life with a sound physical training and environment, and with a liberal education. In 1908 he graduated from the high school at Moline, Kansas, then entered the liberal arts department of the Kansas State University, and soon transferred his studies to the law department, where he graduated June 7, 1911, with the degree LL. B.
Since September, 1911, Mr. Foulston has been in practice at Wichita. In December, 1915, he formed a partnership with William E. Pepperell, a son of W. H. L. Pepperell, the internal revenue collector for this district. The firm is now Foulston & Pepperell. From April 7, 1913, to April 7, 1915, Mr. Foulston served as city prosecutor.
In March, 1915, he married Juanita W. Taylor. Mrs. Foulston is the daughter of Dr. O. J. Taylor, who for many years was in active practice as a physician at Wichita, having located in that city in the early '80s.
