Contains a couple of illustrations from photographs and a drawing. A rare book out of Wilkes County, North Carolina. Romulus Don Laws (1868-1951) was a newspaper editor who was largely self-taught. He was born on his parents' farm in Moravian Falls, Wilkes County, North Carolina. He made his own printing press out of mountain laurel when he was only thirteen, and in 1895 he began publishing the "Yellow Jacket," a strongly partisan Republican newspaper. The paper gained in popularity in the early 20th century, especially during the administration of Woodrow Wilson. His articles were often unrestrained, and he did not shy from using the racist language that was popular at the time. His newspaper gained a wide circulation of nearly half a million readers as he railed against Democrats, Socialists, Nazis (during the '30s & '40s), and blacks. The community of Moravian Falls was small, with fewer than 250 people, and yet Laws created a successful publishing business. In 1906 he built a waterwheel and installed a dynamo on Moravian Falls Creek to provide light and power to his office, home and presses. Other publishing ventures started up there, and Laws employed other printers. James Larkin Pearson, the future poet laureate of North Carolina, was also from Wilkes County and learned printing from Laws.
