EDWARD T. STOREY.
Edward T. Storey, until recently filling the position of office manager with the P. J. Black Lumber Company, but now city commissioner of Cheyenne, is one of Wyoming's native sons and the spirit of western enterprise is manifest in his career.
He was born in Laramie, this state, July 2, 1887. a son of William and Anna (Smith) Storey. His father and mother were married in Laramie in 1883. The former has engaged in railroad work and is still active in railroad service, with which he has been connected for thirty-five years. The mother is also living and has reared a family of six sons, of whom Edward T. of this review is the second in order of birth.
In the public schools Edward T. Storey began his education and attended the Cheyenne high school. He then attended and was graduated from the Cheyenne Business College, having completed the course with the class of 1906. He worked for the Union Pacific Railroad Company in a clerical capacity for a time and afterward was engaged in the United States government survey work in the summer of 1907, aiding in making the boundary line northward. In the fall of 1908 he became connected with the Union Pacific Coal Company and was thus associated for a year, after which he accepted the position as office manager with the P. J. Black Lumber Company. He filled this responsible position until recently making himself thoroughly familiar with the work of the office and capably directing the interests under his control. He now acts as city commissioner, his former varied experiences well qualifying him for the onerous duties of the position.
In religious faith Mr. Storey is a Catholic and he has attained the fourth degree of the Knights of Columbus. He is also connected with the Benevolent Protective Order of Elks, of which he is a past exalted ruler. In politics he is a democrat and has been elected to the office of city commissioner by the largest vote ever given a candidate to that position. He enjoys outdoor life, especially hunting and fishing, but he allows nothing to interfere with the faithful performance of his official duties. He is widely known in Cheyenne and his record as a man and citizen commends him to the confidence and goodwill of those with whom he has been associated.
