Biography | show moreshow less
Harrison Otis (1837-1917), the second publisher of the Los Angeles Times from 1882 to 1914, was a Republican who was part of the convention that nominated President Abraham Lincoln. He later volunteered for American Civil War, where he rose to the rank of lieutenant colonel. He joined the Times after working at a number of other papers, and maintained strict editing control over the paper, turning it into an advocate of Republican interests. Otis rattled the sabers for the Spanish-American War and even served briefly as a brigadier general of volunteers in the war. He was also an opponent of labor unions. The Times was the target of a 1910 bombing that killed 21 employees; three union radicals later confessed to the bombing.
