Raleigh, North Carolina, October 26. William Henry Bagley, who published newspapers in North Carolina, Massachusetts and Texas, died here today at the home of his sister, Mrs. Josephus Daniels, wife of the Ambassador to Mexico, after an illness of several weeks following a heart attack. He was 59 year old. At the time of his death, he was connected with the United States Treasury Department in Little Rock, Arkansas.

Born here, Mr. Bagley was the son of Major William Henry Bagley, for many years Clerk of the North Carolina Supreme Court and Adelaide Ann Worth Bagley, daughter of Governor Jonathan Worth.

A brother, Ensign Worth Bagley, was the first American officer to fall in the war with Spain.

Educated at Bingham School in Mebane, North Carolina and the University of North Carolina, Mr. Bagley went to Cuba in government service with General Tasker Bliss shortly after the war with Spain. He returned to become publisher of The Raleigh Evening Times Visitor and later The Raleigh News and Observer, owned by his brother in law. Relinquishing this post in 1915 he went to Texas as publisher of The Fort Worth Record and from Texas to Lawrence, Massachusetts as publisher of The Telegram.

He was a member of Alpha Tau Omega and a charter member of the Raleigh Rotary Club.

Surviving are three sisters Mrs. Daniels of Raleigh and Mexico City and the Misses Belle and Ethel Bagley of Washington, D.C. and a brother, Captain David Worth Bagley, United States Navy.

Funeral services will be held here tomorrow at 11AM at the Daniels' residence by the Rev. Dr. P.D. Miller of the First Presbyterian Church.

Mr. Bagley's health failed in 1921 and he disposed of his Texas newspaper interests in order to rest. After a year abroad he returned to the newspaper business and became a part owner of The Lawrence Telegram.
