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. He then edited, printed and published a little four-page paper called "Monthly Scraps." This paper was probably the smallest paper regularly published at the time, being less than two and one half inches in size. 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.
