Biography

American publisher, a born writer and story-teller and the world famous publisher and editor of the Emporia Gazette in Kansas.

He saw Indians, the rush of settlement across the plains and the makings of the Mississippi region, relating it all in his autobiography.

As a novelist and biographer, he was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for the best editorial in 1922.
