Morning Star (19th-century UK newspaper)
The newspaper was edited by Samuel Lucas from 1857 until his death in 1865. He had a financial stake in the paper, and as an "active managing partner" he succeeded in recruiting the Irish politician, historian and novelist Justin McCarthy and novelist Edmund Yates as contributors. McCarthy succeeded Lucas as editor from 1865 until 1868. The final issue, with John Morley as editor, was on 13 October 1869.
