Alfred Horatio Belo moved to the Houston area at the end of the Civil War. There he met newswriter Willard Richardson, who published the Galveston Daily News and the Texas Almanac. Belo’s intelligence led Richardson to ask him to become a partner in his publishing business. Belo incorporated the newly-invented telephone by successfully linking his home to the Galveston Daily News.

Belo & Co.
