Frederick W. Kellogg

Frederick W. Kellogg was born in Norwalk, Ohio, December 7, 1866.  He lived in that city until seventeen years of age, acquiring meanwhile an education in the public schools of the town.  After a course in the High School he went to work for one of the Scripps papers, the Cleveland Press, and has been continuously in the newspaper business since that time.  He worked for the various papers in the Scripps League in different departments, and acquired an intimate knowledge of the business from the ground up.  He is an advertising expert, and has been an unqualified success as a solicitor and designer of "catchy" advertising.

     He became a joint proprietor of the Omaha News in connection with M. L. V. Ashbaugh in 1899, and in the same year the two assumed proprietorship of the St. Paul News.  The following year they absorbed the Kansas City World, and this year, 1902, they became the proprietors of the Des Moines News.  Mr. Kellogg is president of the various corporations, and is besides a stockholder in the Scripps-McRea Association.

     He is a Scottish Rite Mason and a Shriner.  He was married in 1890 to Miss Florence Scripps in Detroit, and has three children
