TitleA Veteran Missouri Editor Passes
AbstractPhoto and obituary for Samuel Williams (ca. 1832-1928), "96, once part owner of the Kansas City Evening Mail, later consolidated with The Kansas City Star," and living a block from the Jesse James home in Kansas City in the 1870s and early 1880s during his writing attacks on the James Gang. Description of his career, coming to Kansas City in 1874 as an editor for the Kansas City Times, joining the Kansas City Mail in 1878, and moving to Saint Louis in 1882 before retiring about 1906, "widely known as a fighter."
NotesWhile living here [Kansas City] Mr. Williams wrote sharp attacks on Jesse James and his bandits, then in the height of their power. He lived only a block from the James Home here but never was molested. Mr. Williams always said the gang was 'too busy to pay attention.'
