Julius L. Jacobs was born Dec. 2, 1883, in Upper Beaver Creek, Franklin township, Jackson County, Wisconsin, son of Anna (Evans) and John S. Jacobs, who were also born in the same locality. Their parents came from Valestrand, near Bergen, Norway, in the late forties and early fifties. Julius L. Jacobs attended country school near his home and later attended the Red Wing Lutheran Seminary at Red Wing, Minn. He engaged in teaching and other pursuits until May 7, 1909, when he moved to Franklin, Minn., and purchased the printing and publishing business of Daniel Whetstone, owner of the Franklin Tribune. He has been engaged in that work ever since.
