John Randolph (1857-1901)

John Randolph (1857-1901)

John Randolph, a native of Pennsylvania, was born September 9, 1857. He moved, with his family, to South Carolina during the Civil War and to Riley County, Kansas, in 1870. In 1881 John Randolph was appointed principal of the public schools in Girard, Kansas - a position he occupied for six years. In 1886 Randolph resigned his educational position to enter the law profession with Girard attorney, James Brown. Following his passage of the Kansas bar examination in 1887 Randolph settled in Pittsburg, Kansas, to practice his new profession.

Randolph's legal career thrived and he was involved in numerous community projects and movements such as the establishment of the Pittsburg Public Library. He was no less ardent in local political campaigns on behalf of the Republican Party, and in 1888 he was appointed to fill the position of city attorney. Randolph was frequently a delegate to city, county, state and national conventions.

Randolph married Theresa Gould in 1890. She was active in numerous civic organizations and was librarian at the Pittsburg Public Library for many years. Three sons were born to John and Theresa, including Vance Randolph, the noted folklorist and expert on Ozarks culture.
