One of the most useful citizens passed on when death took Harry E. Taylor, former Portsmouth newspaper editor.

Taylor at one time held all newspaper interests in his home city, surviving his two late partners, his brother, George and Valde Herold to accomplish this business feat.

When the opportunity presented itself a few years ago, he sold out and retired.

In addition to living a keen business career, Taylor made hosts of friends throughout Ohio for his good fellowship and philanthropy.  He gave generously to many charities and civic causes.
