Mr. Bigelow was associate editor and publisher of the Burlington Times in the 60's, and later editorial writer on the Portland Oregonian and the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. He was at different times editor of the Rutland Herald and the St. Albans Messenger. He is survived by one sister, Mrs. Elizabeth T. Cooper of Melrose Highlands, Mass. His brother George H.
