Frederick William Jameson, secretary and treasurer of the Post Publishing Company of Leavenworth, was born at Gateshead, England, May 28, 1879, son of Edward and Jane Ann (Stephenson) Jameson, both natives of Newcastle. The mother belongs to the same branch of the Stephenson family as George Stephenson, the inventor of the steam locomotive. Edward Jameson came to Kansas in 1884, his family following him the next year. He is now engaged in the real estate business in Leavenworth. Nine children were born to Edward and Jane A. Jameson, of whom six are deceased. Those living are Arthur E., who resides at Summit, Union county, New Jersey; Frederick W., the subject of this sketch; and Louise, the wife of John McKee of Brownwood, Tex. Frederick W. Jameson was educated in the public schools of Leavenworth, Kan., graduating in the high school with the class of 1898. In the fall of that year he entered the University of Kansas at Lawrence for a course in electrical engineering. Among his mother's people were several noted engineers and mechanicians, and it is probable that he inherited some of his talent from that source. At any rate he made great progress in his studies at the university and developed exceptional ability as a draughtsman. He was advised by members of the faculty to make a specialty of that work, but in the summer of 1899 he found an opportunity to engage in the publishing business by purchasing the old "Advertiser," which he reorganized and changed the name to "Western Life," publishing it as a weekly until it was sold to the "Kansas Farmer," and on Aug. 18, 1905, he issued the first number of an evening daily. Of the Post Publishing Company Albert T. Reid of Topeka is president, and Mr. Jameson is secretary and treasurer. The Post is a sprightly afternoon paper, giving all the general and local news of importance. Mr. Jameson is a well known and popular figure in the fraternal circles of Leavenworth, being a member of the Masonic fraternity, the Knights of Pythias and the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks. On May 15, 1901, Mr. Jameson was united in marriage with Miss Grace Howard of St. Louis, Mo., and they has three children: Ruth, Edna and Frederick.
