NEW HONOR FOR OSCAR SACHS. ~ Appointed Imperial German Consular Representative for K. C.

April 20, 1909

Appointed Imperial German Con-
sular Representative for K. C.

The unprecedented growth of Kansas City has presumably been noticed by the German government and more direct commercial relations between Kansas City and Germany are desirable. Oscar Sachs was offered the post as representative of the Imperial German consular service and the office was readily accepted by him. Mr. Sachs came to Kansas city from Berlin in 1881 but never lost interest in his old fatherland. He has been for many years an officer of the Elks club, secretary and director of the German hospital since its foundation twenty-three years ago, a member of the City Club, secretary of the German-American Fraternal Alliance and member of other charitable institutions. Although he never held public office, he always took great interest in municipal and civic affairs.
