The Editor and Publisher of the Alpena Evening Echo
The subject of this sketch is better known as "Michael Angelo
Kelly", the humorous writer. Mr. Cunningham, or "Doc" as he is familiarly
called, was born in Scotland in 1856. With his father, Dr. William
Cunningham, of Bay City, Michigan, he came to this country thirty years ago.
He wears his heart on his sleeve and has made and lost half a dozen
comfortable fortunes. In fact, "Doc" is as Democratic in his nature as he
is in politics and seems to care no more about being broke than he does
about being rich.
He was educated as a lawyer, but went into journalism and is there
yet. He has solved the question of making a daily paper pay in Alpena. He
has been everywhere, knows everybody, and swears by Grover Cleveland and
other gods of the Democratic party that Alpena is the Jewel of the State.
He has an amiable wife and three children who think their Dad knows
more than the man who wrote the dictionary.
He was elected to the Board of Education last Spring on the
Democratic ticket and is unswerving in his allegiance to his party.
