Biography of Marvin L. Reist


Reist, Marvin L., Lancaster, born at Williamsville, N. Y., January 4, 1862, is a son of Jacob Reist. He entered the office of the Amherst Bee in March, 1877, as an apprentice, serving three years as such, and was foreman in that office until October 15, 1885. He came to Lancaster about October 18, 1885, and purchased the Lancaster Times, which was at that time a six column, four page paper, printed on an old fashioned hand press. The paper has been twice enlarged, one column having been added to each page in 1892, and in 1895 it was again enlarged, since which time it has been a four page, eight column paper. The paper has always worked for the best interests of the town.
