About Leonard Porter Brooks

He was a lawyer. His house held many sets of law books. His daughter Louise wrote in her book that the house was falling down due to the weight of these books. (Don't recall why she said that.) She also included the comment that "L.P. Brooks is so honest that his secretary makes more money than he does." He was the Assistant Attorney General for the state of Kansas for awhile. i believe he began this job during World War II. He was a very kind man and I wish I had lived closer to my grandfather so I could have seen him more often.
