Years in print:
Russell S. Higgins returned to St. Louis in 1852 and associated himself with Phillip G. Ferguson on the Morning Herald. It became a paying paper. He sold out his interest in the Herald about 1854 and moved away…Mr. Higgins was almost alone of the newspaper proprietors of those days who could show a good balance at the end of the year.
