This newspaper comes from the collections of the Kansas Historical Society and was digitized with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities as part of the National Digital Newspaper Program. The Free Press began on September, 29 1888 in Hays, Kansas as the successor to a number of newspapers starting with the German-American Advocate in 1882 as Volga Germans began settling North-West Kansas. It ran with the motto "Advocating the best interests of Ellis County all the time" under lead of Harry Freese, both editor and publisher. The Free Press ran as a populist title until it became politically independent after 1901.
