For More Than Thirty Years He Had Been in the Wholesale Trade Here.

Robert S. McKee, president of the McKee Shoe Company, died last night at his home, 1126 North Meridian street, in his eightieth year. Mr. McKee’s death was due to his extreme age. For three days he had been unconscious.

His first business venture was with the firm of McKee & Branham, which later became the McKee Shoe Company. Under his guidance the business became large.

With Mr. McKee in the company were his sons, Edward L. McKee, vice-president of the Indianapolis National bank, Col. W. J. McKee, head of the Indiana National Guard, and R. Boone McKee.

His other children were J. Robert McKee and Frank McKee of New York, and Mrs. Charles Merrill, of this city, wife of the treasurer of the Boggs-Merrill Company. His son, J. Robert McKee, married the only daughter of the late former President, Benjamin Harrison and their son, Benjamin Harrison McKee, was, during the administration of President Harrison known all over the country as “Baby” McKee.
