Andrew McLaughlin, editor and proprietor of the "Sabetha Herald," one of the most progressive and best edited weekly papers in northeast Kansas, is a native Kansan. He was born in Hiawatha, in 1882, and is the son of Thomas McLaughlin, a well known banker of that city. There he was reared and educated and at the age of ten he began his newspaper career in the office of the "Hiawatha World," which is owned and edited by his uncle, Ewing Herbert, one of the best known newspaper men in the state. Therefore before Mr. McLaughlin had reached his majority he had fully decided to enter the field of journalism. In July, 1909, he purchased the "Sabetha Herald," the leading paper of Nemaha county. Mr. McLaughlin has inherited from his Scotch-Irish ancestors a tenacity of purpose and a determination to win that is reflected each week in every one of the sixty columns of carefully selected matter that appears in the "Sabetha Herald." He belongs to that younger school of Western newspaper men whose ideas on local, state and national issues have accomplished much towards advancing better ideals of government. As an evidence of Mr. McLaughlin's success as an editor it might be well to state that during his first two years' control of the "Sabetha Herald" he added 450 new subscribers and installed about $3,500.00 worth of modern equipment to the plant, including a standard Mergenthaler linotype machine.

June 28, 1905, Mr. McLaughlin married Miss Florence Albee of Hiawatha, Kan., where she was born, reared and educated. For five years prior to her marriage Mrs. McLaughlin was a teacher in the Hiawatha schools. Mr. and Mrs. McLaughlin have one child—Emily Jane. Politically Mr. McLaughlin is an active Republican, and fraternally he is a Royal Arch and a Knight Templar, having been eminent commander of Hiawatha Commandery, No. 13, and at the time was the youngest eminent commander in the state. He and wife are both members of the Congregational church.
