David John Lewis is a well known newspaper writer of Hastings who has done excellent and highly acceptable work
for the Omaha Bee and the Hastings Daily Tribune. His birth occurred on a farm in Clay county, Nebraska, his parents
being Herbert and Mary Lewis, who were married in Wales and following their emigration to the United States spent
four years in Pennsylvania and Ohio. In 1865 they settled on a farm in Clay county, Nebraska, where the father
was actively and successfully identified with general agricultural pursuits until 1905, when they took up their
abode in Hastings, where the mother passed away on the tenth of May, 1910. Herbert Lewis still survives and is
now enjoying the fruits of his former toil in well earned ease.
David J. Lewis supplemented his early education by a course of study in Hastings College of Hastings, Nebraska,
which institution conferred upon him the degree of Bachelor of Arts in 1900. Since his graduation he has been engaged
in newspaper work as a writer for the Omaha Bee and the Hastings Daily Tribune, and has won enviable recognition
by his pleasing, forceful style, his articles proving an attractive feature of the journals to which he contributes.
In his political views Mr. Lewis is independent, while fraternally he is identified with the Independent Order
of Odd Fellows. His life measures up to the highest standards in every relation and he has won an extensive circle
of warm friends in the city of his residence.
