A History of Kentucky and Kentuckians, The Leaders and Representative Men in Commerce, Industry and Modern Activities. By E. Polk Johnson, Volume III. Illustrated. Publishers: The Lewis Publishing Company, Chicago-New York, 1912.

Leslie Carroll Bosley has long enjoyed distinctive prestige in a calling which requires for its basis sound mentality and intellectual discipline of a high order, and in his chosen field of endeavor he has been eminently successful, standing today among the leading educators of his section of the state. A native of Kentucky, he was born in Lincoln county on the 9th of October, 1872, and is a son of John S. and Ann (Lytle) Bosley, the former of whom was engaged in farming for many years in Lincoln county.

Having obtained his preliminary education in the country schools, Leslie Carroll Bosley then attended Centre College Academy, after which he was enrolled as a student in Centre College, where he was graduated, with the degree of Bachelor of Arts, in 1891, receiving from that institution also the degree of Bachelor of Laws in 1898. In 1892 he began teaching in the city schools of Campbellsville, Kentucky, remaining there until 1895, when he was chosen principal of Centre College Academy. He filled that position in a vry satisfactory manner until 1918, when he was elected superintendent of the schools of Danville, and is still filling that position. He is a man of widely-recognized ability as a teacher, while his administration of the schools under his charge has been marked by wisdom and soundness of judgment that have gained for him added prestige. He is also a director of the Boyle Bank and Trust Company.

On December 26, 1906, Mr. Bosley was united in marriage to Miss Lillian Forsythe, daughter of Robert and Sallie (Givins) Forsythe, of Mercer county, Kentucky. Mr. and Mrs. Bosley are the parents of two children, Jack Lytle, born May 18, 1909, and Lillian Forsythe, born September 13, 1916. Politically, Mr. Bosley has been a lifelong supporter of the democratic party, while his religious affiliation is with the Christian church, in which he is an elder. He is also superintendent of the Sunday school and teacher of the men’s Bible class. Because of his splendid record and his sterling character, he well merits the high esteem in which he is held throughout the community.
