R.E. Pritchard

Old Settlers Book of Bates County January 1900


one of the editors of the Rich Hill Tribune, was born in Cal-houn county, Iowa, May 31, 1877, and with his parents re­moved to Missouri in 1879, and in the spring of 1881 came to Rich Hill where they still reside. He was educated in the public schools of that place and after finishing the high school served his apprenticeship as a printer, but on account of ill health was forced to leave the case. In 1897 he attended the Rich Hill Business College and graduated with honors in the class of '98. He then returned to the case but decided to teach school during the winter and taught a very successful term.

In March, 1899, he purchased an half interest in the Rich Hill Tribune and continues as its junior editor. He is an in­telligent, upright and industrious young man, a staunch Re­publican and true to his party's principles.
