Richard H. Trueblood of Yates Center, Kan., editor and owner of the "Weekly News," has been identified with that publication for the past twenty-five years and is one of the best known newspaper men of Southeastern Kansas. Mr. Trueblood was born in Indiana, Jan. 15, 1863. His parents, Henry S. and Julia (Gowan) Trueblood, were also natives of Indiana, and his grandfather, Jesse Trueblood, was one of the earliest pioneers of that state and died there. Henry S. Trueblood and his family came to Kansas, in 1871, and located on a farm in Woodson county. In 1879 he was elected county clerk of Woodson county and that same year removed to Yates Center, the county seat, where he still resides. After serving two terms as county clerk he engaged in the mercantile business at Yates Center and is still one of the leading merchants of that city. He is a veteran of the Civil war and in his political views is a Republican. Both parents of our subject are devoted and consistent members of the Methodist Episcopal church.

Richard H. Trueblood was educated in the common schools of Woodson county, Kansas. In early youth he entered a printing office to master the printing business and has been identified with that line of work ever since. In July, 1886, he bought the "Weekly News," a Republican paper, which he has since made one of the strongest and most influential weeklies of Kansas. Its pages are carefully edited and its editorials give strong support to all movements for the progress and development of Woodson county and of the state. The paper has a wide circulation and twenty-five years of successful management has made it a profitable business venture. It is the official paper of Woodson county. Mr. Trueblood is also a stockholder and a director of the Yates Center National Bank, but he devotes his attention exclusively to his newspaper work. Fraternally he affiliates with the time-honored Masonic order.
