A blind man as a publisher of a newspaper? Yes, in fact, he published several newspapers. Blinded as an adult, he felt that he could no longer be a banker, his first profession and chose to follow through on his second profession, publishing a local newspaper. One newspaper lead to another and before long, he was managing several Nebraska newspapers. With no training in blindness, he set out to do the best he could to support his young family.
Today, a great-grandson still heads the family paper.
