William C. Thomas, business manager of the Sheboygan County News, was born in Sheboygan Falls, May 25, 1859, and is a son of Hon. John E. Thomas {see sketch of father on another page of this record.} Our subject was reared and educated in his native town, and was variously employed until September 18, 1878, when he took the business management of the News, of which his father is proprietor. For Fifteen years he has filled that position with ability and fidelity.

The Sheboygan County News is a six-column, ten-page paper, and is independent in politics. The paper was started in Sheboygan in the fall of 1876, by F. J. Mills. In May, of 1878, the paper was removed to Sheboygan Falls, where the following September it became the property of John E. Thomas, its present proprietor. Since the paper changed handsthe office has been enlarged and a first class job office added, so that the News is one of the best appointed newspaper and job offices in the county. The News has a business and editorial office in Sheboygan, and is quoted from that place, from which it receives a large proportion of its patronage.
