1889 Bio Index

A. B. WARNER, Principal of the public school of Harlan, is a native of the State of Pennsylvania. He was born April 12, 1855, and is the son of Samuel and Mary E. Warner. When he was ten years of age his parents removed from New York, in which State they had lived for several years, to Bowling Green, Pike County, Missouri; there he attended school for some time, and in 1879 graduated from the State Normal School at Kirksville, Missouri. At the age of eighteen he began teaching, and with the exception of the time spent in study he has since followed this high calling. For four years he had charge of the schools in Allerton, Wayne County, Iowa, and in 1885, after an experience of eleven years, he took charge of the Harlan schools. In the profession of teaching he has doubtless found the work for which he is endowed. He is an excellent disciplinarian, and as an instructor has few equals. Harlan may well congratulate her-self upon having at the head of her public schools such a man as Mr. Warner. He was married May 24, 1878, to Miss Alice Perryman, of Princeton, Missouri. They have had born to them three children-Ray, Blanche and Carl. Politically Mr. Warner is a prohibitionist, and believes in free trade and civil service reform. Mr. and Mrs. Warner are members of the Methodist Episcopal church.
