Description "YOUNG" PAPERS THAT ACTUALLY ARE OLD McConaughy of Omaha, Nebraska. On May 1, 1972, they handed the reins to their son, Robert D. (Bud) McConaughy. Richard M. and Susan Buys became the owners October 1, 1976. On September 1, 1982, Ken G. and Marie Adams, who had been co-editors of the News since 1978, purchased it and have subsequently been its publishers. Evidence of the existence of another paper, the Morgan Post, is contained in the memoirs of John Stahle, Sr., publisher of the Davis County Clipper. He recalls an ambitious Linotype operator at the Standard-Examiner in Ogden launching the publication in 1909 but quickly realizing he couldn't handle it. He managed to persuade Mr. Stahle to take the paper in exchange for typesetting services. The additional publishing chores didn't fit the Bountiful man's schedule, however, so he disposed of the Post on September 2, 1910 and the publication disappeared into oblivion, another effort which left no files by which to trace its passage. Albert W. Epperson is enshrined in the Newspaper Hall of Fame. MURRAY The Murray American, predecessor of today's Murray Eagle, was established almost a decade before the community itself was incorporated. W. C. Dewar was the founding publisher in 1894, but the date printed on Volume 1, Number 1 cannot be established because all early files were destroyed in a 1924 fire. Newspaper historian Cecil Alter, writing in his Early Utah Journalism, quotes from the Brigham Bugler of July 28, 1894: "A Murray American has reached our table." Alter goes on to explain, "The form of expression probably indicates a new newspaper. We are thus inclined to believe that Murray's first newspaper was the American, which became the American Eagle with change of management in 1896." The change of management to which Alter referred was W. M. White succeeding Dewar as owner, in conjunction with E. G. Rognon. Rognon was also associated with E. H. Scott in 95
