Warren Rogers Fisher is one of the well-known journalists of northern Kentucky and occupies a prominent place in business circles of Carlisle, his native town. He was born August 18, 1884, and is a son of John Irvine and Mary (Rogers) Fisher. His father now resides in Louisville and is secretary-treasurer of the Courier-Journal Job Printing Company. Warren R. Fisher completed a course in the high school at Covington and attended the old Kentucky University. In 1912 he became the owner of the Mercury, purchasing the business from Green R. Keller, an editor of prominence. This is the leading newspaper of Nicholas county and one of the oldest in the state. It was established in 1867 and has been in operation for sixty years, growing steadily in power and usefulness. The editorials are timely and well written and the paper has a wide circulation.

Mr. Fisher was married November 27, 1914, to Miss Elizabeth Collins, a daughter of Richard Durbin and Eleanor (Smith) Collins, of Fayette county, Kentucky. Mr. and Mrs. Fisher have become the parents of a son, Warren Rogers, Jr., who was born February 8, 1917. Mr. Fisher belongs to Kappa Alpha, a college fraternity, and his political allegiance is given to the democratic party. He is a journalist of progressive ideas, equipped to deal vigorously and convincingly with the vital questions of the day, and has made his paper the champion of every movement calculated to advance the welfare and interests of the community and promote the growth of the surrounding district.
