Journalist. Born 1853. Died 1937.

E.W. Howe started his career as a journalist in 1873 when he and a partner began publishing the "Golden Globe" newspaper in Golden, Colorado.  Howe took over and then sold the newspaper a few years later. He moved to Falls City, Nebraska where he reentered newspaper publishing.
