  • Notes 
    • From the 1983 Lane Family Genealogy by Everett Richard Lane.

      Horace had a very interesting life. He graduated from Culbertson High School and attended Montana Wesleyan College in Helena in 1917. Near the end of his freshman year he enlisted in the naval Reserve and was on active duty until December 1918. he returned to Montana Wesleyan and graduated in 1921. August 3, 1921, he married Dorotha Bartlett. But before I go on I must say that while he was in college he was Montana's alternate for the Rhodes scholarship. After graduating from Montana Wesleyan he attended the University of Oregon 1921-22. After that he returned to Helena as principle of the college academy for two years. While in Helena his first child, Horace, was born. These two years at the academy were followed by two years in public schools. During this time Helen was born. After this he turned to newspaper work and moved to Portland, Oregon, and took a job on the news desk for the Oregonian. It was here Charis was born. A year later he moved ot Olympia, Washington, where for fourteen years he was managing editor for the Daily Olympian, OLympia, Washington. His last two children, Robert and Barbara, were born here.
      In 1941 he moved to Seattle, Washington, and joined the news staff of the Times. Sometime between 1946 and 1948 he became make-up editor and held that job until his retirement January 1, 1967.
      After retiring in 1967 in collaboration with Adelia M. Price he wrote Montana Driftwood, a book on the history of Montana. It was well received by the public and it was necessary to have a second printing in August 1968. He continued to enjoy his retirement until May 1976 when he was called home to his eternal resting place.
