William was educated in the schools of Potsdam, NY, Montreal Canada, and Kansas City, MO. When he was about twelve years old, he aquired a small ameteur printing press.

This work of a child brought forth that energy and perseverance which afterward characterized him and brought him success in his professional career. he was from early boyhood, fond of writing letters to children's magazines, and he developed considerable talent in that way. His first regular newspaper work was taken up in 1887, when he became connected with the "Evening News". In 1890 he became the acting city editor of that paper. In September, 1890, he accepted a position with the "Star," with which he remained until his death. He also during this time acted as correspondent for periodicals in other cities. He had also written several special articles on the early mound builders, ethnology and other historical and scientific subjects. published in eastern journals and copied into other papers. He was married on August 30, 1890 to Emma Louise Bullard, daughter of Captain Albert F. and /Fannie Bullard of Kansas City. They had one son, Albert William Bloss. He died at his home in Kansas City, July 28, 1894 at the age of 24.
