1857 - 1935
Lucius William Nieman
Moving from the Milwaukee Sentinel, Nieman purchased controlling interest in the newly founded Milwaukee Daily Journal in 1892. Over the next 53 years, he built the Journal into one of the most successful and respected newspapers in the nation. The firm was organized as a stock company in 1890 and has continued to grow and prosper as Journal Communications, a publishing and media conglomerate.
