A job with the Wisconsin State Journal
brought William Evjue back to Madison from
Chicago and into the newsroom where he worked under Richard Lloyd Jones. The two became fast
friends and colleagues based largely on their affection for
Gov. Robert La Follette
World War I split their allegiances toward La Follette. Evjue then ventured out on his own
and founded The Capital Times
which was at the forefront of the Progressive movement.
His newspaper, and its charitable arm, the Evjue Foundation, continue today.
Interred at Forest Hill Cemetery
