Edward Lee Ritchie, LL.B.

Wingo, Kentucky

From the Knight of the Lexington Drug Handbook we learn that every afternoon and evening "Grandpap" may be seen looking after his interests at the Phoenix or Ape Yard. He is really quite successful as a banker and hotel keeper, but once upon a time he craved higher learning so he studied law for a hobby. He may even take the bar exams some day, and we're betting on his getting through.

-The Kentuckian, 1922
