Wilson Carlisle Price, editor and publisher of Oak Hill, Kan., is a native of Illinois and was born at Port Byron August 6, 1891, a son of Rev. W. S. and Nellie F. (Willis) Price. Rev. Price was born on his father's farm near Galva, Ill., July 10, 1857. He was reared a farmer, acquired his education in the public schools, and during his early life engaged in teaching. He subsequently entered the newspaper field and for several years was employed in various capacities on daily papers. Following his work as a journalist he studied for the ministry and entered actively into the work of the gospel at Fairbury, Neb., in 1908, where for a short time he published a paper. In 1909 he was assigned to the pastorate of the Methodist Episcopal church at Ada, Kan. In 1911 he established at Oak Hill, Clay county, the "Gazette," a weekly paper, and also engaged in the furniture business. In 1885 he married Miss Nellie F. Willis, who was born at Woodhall, Ill., May 5, 1863. a daughter of Dr. Willis, of that town. They are the parents of the following children: Irma Elizabeth, born January 14, 1888, the wife of S. S. Hale, a farmer of Clay county, Kan.; Isaiah Glenn, born July 3, 1889, a printer of Chicago, Ill.; Wilson Carlisle, of this sketch; Robert McNair, born October 8, 1895, employed on the "Gazette" at Oak Hill; Archie Rollins, born November 16, 1897; Frances Eleanor, born November 16, 1900; and Howard William, born on September 4, 1906.

Wilson Carlisle Price received a good common school education and gained his knowledge of the printer's art and journalism from his father. His first employment was on the paper published by the latter in Fairbury, Neb., and later, on the establishing of the "Gazette," he continued in that vocation. On January, 1913, he became its owner and has since edited and published it with success. It enjoys a healthy circulation and the job department of the office is well equipped and prosperous. Judging from his work to date, Mr. Price will become favorably known among Kansas journalists at no distant date.
