Biography of Willaim W. Gay
Franklin County, NY Biographies





William W. Gay, born in Malone in January, 1854, studied law and was admitted to the bar after graduation from Franklin Academy and Middlebury College, but, finding the practice distasteful, turned his attention to journalism about 1881, in which his success has been pronounced. His first connection was with the Springfield (Mass.) Republican, and he has since been on various Chicago and New York city dailies, at times as a special correspondent where assignments were important and service required discretion and judgment, but usually in the home office, where he has filled nearly every responsible position, including general and political editorial work. Of retentive memory, broadly read, indefatigable in application, and strong and. brilliant as a writer, Mr. Gay has emphatically "made good." He has been on the New York World for several years past.
