Contributed by Karen Mitchell.

French Lee Taylor, attorney at law practicing at the Pueblo bar, was born August 23, 1884, in Azen, Missouri, a son of Parkman W. and Darna R. (Yeager) Taylor. The father was a cattle man and is now living in Colorado, making his home at Penrose. To him and his wife have been born four sons, of whom French Lee Taylor is the second in order of birth. During his youthful days a student in the public and preparatory schools, French Lee Taylor afterward became a pupil in Denver University, where he devoted a year to the study of the arts course and three years to the study of law. He was graduated in 1913 and for nine months engaged in practice at Canon City. In April, 1914, he came to Pueblo and was made special officer in the district attorney's office. He is. now concentrating his efforts and attention upon general law practice and his developing powers have brought him a clientage that many a man connected with the profession for a longer period might well envy. On the 22d of December, 1915, Mr. Taylor was united in marriage to Miss Edna Mildred Hills, of Denver, and .they are well known socially in Pueblo, where the hospitality of many of the best homes is freely accorded them. They are also identified with the Congregational church, while in fraternal relations Mr. Taylor is a Mason, having taken the degrees of the lodge, and a member of Lodge No. 2, K. P., of Pueblo. He belongs also to the Lions Club and he gives his political allegiance to the democratic party. He turns to hunting and fishing for rest and recreation and his interest in those things constitutes an even balance to arduous professional activities. He recognizes the fact that one must play well and work well to avoid one-sided development and his habit of concentration upon the duty or interest at hand is one of the forces which has made for his success in anything that he has undertaken. He is now rapidly forcing his way to the front in a professional connection and ranks with the leading young lawyers of Pueblo. History Of Colorado Illustrated Volume II Chicago The S. J.
