Biography*  

    THEO. A. DECKER, editor of the Hutchinson Herald, was born in the town of Adamsville, Muskingum Co., Ohio, February 11, 1847. He resided in that county until he came to Kansas, acting as correspondent and local editor prior to entering the army, in 1863. In August of that year he enlisted in Company E, Ninety-seventh Ohio Volunteer Infantry. He was mustarded out of the service in October, 1865, having acted as war correspondent of the Cincinnati Gazette. After leaving the service he returned to Zanesville, and was for a time employed as a teacher, at the same time engaging in newspaper work. He continued in these occupations until he came to Hutchinson, in 1879. He then commenced to read law, and now associates its practice with editorial work.
