Charles J. O'Malley

Charles J. O'Malley was born at Newport, County Mayo, Ireland, in 1859.  He derived his education at his native place and at Glasgow, Scotland.  He ran away from college at the age of fourteen, and came to this country.  After a short time in New York city, he went to Manistee, Mich., where a brother was running a weekly paper, and learned the business in all its branches.  In 1885 he became a reporter on the Milwaukee Evening Wisconsin and later on the Chicago Times.  He then started a weekly paper in Scranton, Pa.  Afterwards he returned to Manistee, and ran the Advocate there for a year; then went to work for the Rocky Mountain News at Denver.  In 1890 he went to Europe for the News, and on his return became traveling correspondent for the Detroit Evening News, and three years later was made business manager of the Free Press.  In 1895 he left to take charge of a department in the New Orage Industrial Association, which built an industrial town in New Jersey.

     In February, 1897, Mr. O'Malley came to Kansas City for the Scripps-McRea League, and had charge of the Pure Food Exposition, afterwards devoting his energy to the building up of the Kansas City World and other papers owned by the League.

     In 1899 he started the Land Owner's Security Company.

     He is prominent in local Catholic and Irish affairs, being a charter member and recorder of the Kansas City Council of the Knights of Columbus, and is also a director of the Karnival Krewe.
