Walter A. Knox,

editor of the Vevay "Times," was born in Vevay March 26, 1863, his parents being George P. and Mary S. (Harwood) Knox. He was educated in the public schools of Vevay and learned the printing trade in the office of the Vevay "Reveille," where he was several years employed. In 1882 he established the Vevay "Times," which from a little 6x9 single sheet, has grown to very creditable proportions as a country paper, and in the publication of this sheet Mr. Knox has since been engaged. He was married, in November, 1884, to Miss Mary L. Simmons, daughter of Benjamin L. and Jane (Hatch) Simmons, old and esteemed residents of Vevay, her father at present holding the mayorship of the city.
