Cloyce W. Hamilton.—The little city of Enterprise has as one of its able and successful representatives of the newspaper profession Mr. Hamilton, who has been established here in newspaper work since March, 1911. He was born at Le Roy, Kan., Sept. 13, 1884, and is the second son of John P. and Emeret (Elliott) Hamilton. The father was born at Findlay, Ohio, Jan. 12, 1849, and always followed farming as an occupation. He came to Kansas, in 1870, locating in Coffey county, on a farm near Le Roy, and he married Miss Emeret Elliott, in 1879, at Gridley, Kan. She is a daughter of a farmer, A. Elliott, and wife, both of whom are deceased. Of this union of Mr. and Mrs. Hamilton were born six children: Cloyce W.; Blanche, who resides at the parental home; Earl, Grace, wife of William Fields of LeRoy; Goldie, wife of Fred Ashenhust, who is a salesman at Wichita; and Glenn. Cloyce W. Hamilton secured his earlier educational training in the public schools of Le Roy, and at the age of sixteen entered the office of the "Le Roy Reporter" as an apprentice. He worked as a printer until 1908, when he became the publisher and editor of the "La Harpe Journal," which he conducted one year. Then selling this paper he purchased the "Blue Mound Sun," which he published one year, and on March 1, 1911, purchased the "Enterprise Push," of which he is the present editor and owner. So it may be seen that his fortification for the work of his profession is especially excellent, through the diversity and completeness of his technical training. His success has been pronounced from, the start and he controls a large and representative patronage, his paper being recognized as one of the leading publications in Dickinson county.

On Dec. 31, 1907, Mr. Hamilton was married to Miss Grace Gwin, daughter of B. M. Gwin, retired, of La Harpe, and they have one son, Cloyce, Jr., who was born June 29, 1910.
