J. A Chew

 

J. A. CHEW, general manager of The Chew Publishing Company of Xenia, publishers of the Evening Daily Gazette and the Morning Daily Republican was born at Xenia on July 10, 1882, son of William Brown and Anna V. (McBurney) Chew, both of whom are still living at Xenia, where for many years William Brown Chew has been associated with his father, the venerable James Parker Chew, in the newspaper and publishing business, both members of the Chew Publishing Company, further reference to which and to the growth and development of the Xenia Gazette is set out in a biographical sketch relating to the elder Chew presented elsewhere in this volume.
     Reared at Xenia, J. A. Chew received his schooling in the schools of that city and in the Ohio Military Institute at Cincinnati, after which he began work for his father in the job-printing and publishing business, consolidated under the firm name of The Aldine Publishing House.  In 1906 he became a partner of his father in the business, and successfully managed the affairs of the company until 1912 when he assumed the general managership of the Daily Gazette.  In August, 1915, Mr. Chew organized the Chew Publishing Company with seventy thousand dollars capital and purchased both the Daily Gazette and the opposition paper, the Daily Republican, both of which are published separately by his company under the titles of the Evening Gazette and the Morning Republican.  Mr. Chew is president and treasurer of the company.  His venerable grandfather continues as editor of both papers.
     On Oct. 26, 1904, J. A. Chew was united in marriage to Jessie R. Baker, who also was born at Xenia, daughter of W. R. Baker, further mention of whom is made elsewhere in this volume, and to this union two children have been born, Florence B., born on May 19, 1907, and Anna Katherine, Apr. 22, 1915.
