FRENCH LEE TAYLOR
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.
