Henry P. BARRET, tobacco exporter, of Henderson, Kentucky, was born in that city September 2, 1865, his parents being James R. and Lucy F. (STITES) BARRET. He was educated at the Central University, Danville, Kentucky, where he attended from 1880 to 1883. He then worked for the well known tobacco firm of John H. BARRET & Company for five years, and in 1888 embarked in business for himself as an exporter of tobacco. He first established himself at Robertsí Station, but went from there to Owensboro, where he continued in business for several years. He then opened large rehandling establishments at Wickliffe and Providence, and it is said he now handles as much tobacco as any other individual buyer in the world, if not more.
