Slosson, Harry E. general office manager of the New North newspaper, Rhinelander, which is the pioneer journal of Oneida County, was born at Ogema, Price County, July 6, 1885, son of Elbert J. and Anna SLOSSON. The father was a native of Wausau, Marathon County, Wis., and the mother of Wilmington, Del. The latter located in Price County in 1880 and the father in 1883, in which latter year they were married in Ogema. Elbert J. SLOSSON was engaged in railroad work until 1918, when he retired and he and his wife are now living in Rhinelander. Harry E. SLOSSON acquired his education in the Rhinelander public schools and at Stevens Point Business College. He then entered into the newspaper business, becoming connected with the New North of Rhinelander. That connection has now lasted for 20 years or for nearly one half the period during which the paper has been in existence. An able writing and a thorough and efficient business man, Mr. SLOSSON has been and still is an influential factor in the progress of the community and is a man held in high esteem by a wide circle of friends and acquaintances, as well as by many others who are in accord with the principles and policies which he supports. He is fraternally affiliated with the Modern Woodmen of America. Mr. SLOSSON was married July 29, 1912, to Josephine NELSON, who was born at Norrie, Marathon County, Wis. He and his wife are the parents of two children: Dorothy, born April 15, 1914, and Roeburn, born in October, 1917.
