pioneer papers of the southwest and a
leading citizen of New Mexico, died
Sunday morning- at 1 o'clock, after a
The biography of Lawrence La Point
is the history of southern New Mexico
since the civil warP Marching with
the California column to El Paso, the
veteran editor went to Mesilla, X. M.,
now known as Old Mesilla. While there
he edited one of the first newspapers
printed in southern Xew Mexico. It
was called the "Mesilla Times," and
copies of the pioneer paper are now on
file in the territorial historical society
archives. When the county seat was
changed from Mesilla to Las Cruces,
Mr. La Point moved to the new town
and was actively associated with the
movements which have developed this
city from an adobe cow camp to the
modern city it is today. He was in ac
tive charge of the Las Cruces Citizen,
as managing editor, until last year.
His son, Will P. La Point, who was en
gaged in business in San Francisco, re
lieved his father of the business cares
of the paper last spring, and since that
time has been in charge of the weekly
paper. The senior La Point continued
to write editorials for the Mesilla val
ley weekly, and his articles on good
roads and harmonious cooperation
were largely responsible for the rapid
growth of the town and valley.
Lawrence La Point was 73 years old
at the time of his death, and is sur
vived by a wife and four children, two
sons and two daughters. Death result
ed from complications caused by old age.
although the dean of the Xew Mexico
press was in apparent good health Sat
urday evening and was planning a trip
to California soon. His death removes
the second veteran editor from the news
paper field of Xew Mexico, Col. Max
Frost, editor of the Santa Fe Xew Mexi
can, having died last year.
The funeral arrangements have not
yet been announced. They will be in
charge of the Masonic lodge of Las
Cruces, and the local military company
and the Phil Sheridan post of the G. A.
R. will attend as an escort of honor
to the veteran soldier-editor.
