LAWSON, LIONEL:

English newspaper proprietor; born in 1823 in London; died there Sept. 20, 1879. He was educated in Germany. Inheriting a fortune from his father, he established a manufactory of printing-ink at St. Ouen, France, made another large fortune, and then sold the business. He afterward established a similar business in London. He became one of the principal proprietors of the London "Daily Telegraph," although he at no time took an active part in the management of the paper.
