About

The Columbus Amateur was a short-lived newspaper founded by William R. Slade and J. D. Slade on September 8, 1876. The paper aimed to avoid having a political voice and focused on national and local news of interest. The Slades also managed a boys’ school, which they advertised in the pages of their paper. The Amateur ceased publication the same year as its founding.
