Early Lusk Herald Editor Dies in Washington, D. C.
Boyd Burrows, an early editor of The Lusk Herald, died in Washington, D. C. of a heart attack Dec. 14.
Burrows first came to Lusk in 1919 as a traveling theatrical man. His tent was blown away by a tornado and he was temporarily employed as a clerk in the H. C. Snyder store.
Believing that Lusk should have a more up-to-date newspaper than was then being issued, he induced Martin C. Agnew and Ralph I. Olinger to buy out the Forsythes and install a more modern printing plant. Mr. Burrows served as editor during the oil boom in Lusk and when the boom subsided he left.
He was employed as a printer at the time of his death.
Mr. Burrows is survived by his son, Boyd Burrows, Jr., who is now attending Wyoming University.
