About this collection

Plattsburg Leader banner

The Plattsburg Leader was established in 1895 by John McMichael.  In 1917 The Leader was purchased by Charles F. Ward who continued his ownership until 1950 when it was sold to long time employees of the paper John and Helen Biggerstaff.  The Biggerstaff’s had been employed with the paper since 1913 as editors and…     In 1968 the Biggerstaff’s sold the paper to J.W. “Skip” and Franc E. Tinnen.  In 1990 the Plattsburg Leader was consolidated with the 83-year old Lathrop Optimist, and the two continue to be published under the banner of The Clinton County Leader.  The paper today is still owned by Tinnen Publishing and operated by Steve and Sue Tinnen of Plattsburg, MO.  The paper covers news about local governments, communities, schools, sports and more from Plattsburg, Lathrop, Grower, and outlying areas of Clinton County.
