King, Henry, journalist, was born at Salem, Columbiana county, Ohio, May 11, 1842, a son of Selah W. and Eliza (Aleshire) King. He received a good, practical education in the public schools of his native state; married Miss Marie Louise Lane on Nov. 17, 1861, and served for four years in the Union army during the Civil war. His wife is a relative of former Gov. Nance of Nebraska. After the war he engaged in newspaper work at Quincy, Ill., and after a year or two there removed to Topeka, Kan., where he occupied editorial positions on the Record, the Commonwealth and the Capital. He was founder and first editor of the Kansas Magazine, the first number of which was issued in Jan., 1872, and to which he contributed a number of interesting articles on various subjects. In 1883 he removed to St. Louis, Mo., and accepted a position on the staff of the Globe-Democrat. In 1897 he was made managing editor of that paper, a position he still holds in 1911.
