Newspaper Publisher. After working in banking and real estate, he moved to Denver in 1895 and, with Harry Heye Tammen, purchased the "Evening Post", renaming it the "Denver Post". With a theatrical approach to journalism, they made it one of the most sensational newspapers in the country. In 1900, both Bonfils and Tammen were seriously wounded by a lawyer who took issue with their attacks on public figures and officials. At the time of his death, he was engaged in a libel suit against Roy W. Howard's rival "Rocky Mountain News".
