    My husband passed away four years ago.  He had been writing a weekly column for a newspaper...

    called "Management Matters."  His dream was to publish them either in book form or on line.  He wrote hundreds of columns from the standpoint of the Clinical / Industrial Psychologist he was, his past theological background and his extensive knowledge gained in his 10  years troubleshooting and counseling at a former large bank in Chicago.  How can I do this through HubPages?  Thanks for any advice you may have for me.

    Before you start you need to know if your late husband had retained the copyright, and if so, that it has been passed on to you.  Often, newspaper columns are the copyright of the newspaper.

    Mick S is right about the copyright, however, in order to honor your husband the newspaper may agree to share the copyright with you on a limited basis. Talk to his editor to find out if they are willing to work with you.

    Both Mick and C.A. are straight up.I hope that your dilemma is already solved. If the newspaper has the copyrights, whether you can use them or not may depend upon whether you plan on making money or not with the articles. If your intentions are simply to bring more exposure to the information and not to gain financially, chances are the editor may release the articles to you with some sort of simple agreement. If $$ is going to be made, naturally the agreement gets stickier.
       I've prayed that the God of peace is with you and I'm truly sorry for the loss of your husband. May God bless you.
