TitleThe Far Reaching Legacy of Kansas City's Robert McClure Snyder
AbstractRobert McClure Snyder's life was cut short in 1906 when he died as a result of an automobile accident in Kansas City. He was a successful businessman and real estate speculator who became a millionaire within 25 years of his coming to Kansas City in 1880. He organized the Mechanics Bank which became City National Bank and eventually a Kemper bank and he was the organizer of what became the Kansas City Life Insurance Company. He also participated in the formation of the natural gas utility industry in the Kansas City area. He may be best remembered today for his estate in south Missouri called Ha Ha Tonka, now a state park.
