Hammond Bros. Nebraska.
The Hammond Brothers Company of Nebraska was essentially created in 1882 when Ross L. Hammond bought a half interest in the company that his brother Frank Hammond already owned the other half of. The company was a printing plant that had been operated as the “Tribune Printing Company” in the late 1800s. After interest in the company was bought and sold a couple of times the Hammond Brothers slowly gained the entire company, first with George Hammond in 1879. Ross L. Hammond had been editor of the Daily Tribune for forty years when he retired and sold his interest in the company in 1920. Under the Hammond Brothers the Tribune became a daily paper with high circulation throughout the county.
