These four photographs show newspaper editor and publisher Frank Pitts MacLennan, 1855-1933, a native of Springfield, Ohio. Frank moved with his family to Emporia, Kansas in 1870 and began his newspaper career by working for the Emporia Daily News in 1877. He worked in the "mechanical, reportorial, business, and editorial" departments before becoming an equal partner in the Emporia Daily News in 1880. He later sold his interest in the paper in 1885. On October 30,1885, MacLennan purchased the Topeka State Journal, the official state paper of Kansas and the city of Topeka, Kansas.
