Title Page194
Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION Bette (1983) were the first husband-and-wife presidents. Harold B. (Jack) Sumner (1963) and Brent (1991) were father-and-son. Clarin D. Ashby (1967) was the father of Kevin (1987). John Stahle, Jr. (1968), the son of a founding member of the association, John, Sr., was the father of J. Howard Stahle (1972) and Larry (1992). Glenn H. Bjornn (1974) was the father of Richard (1980). Roy Schonian, Duchesne Record, was elected president in 1944 but resigned in mid-summer. Albert Epperson of Kays-ville, the vice president, completed Schonian's term and was then elected in 1945. Wm. James Mortimer of the Deseret News became president in 1994, marking the first time a daily publisher had headed the association since 1935, when J. A. Owens of the Provo Herald was USPA's leader. The reason was that, for the most part, dailies had not been active members in those intervening years. The few participating had associate status. In all, only five daily newsmen held the presidency during the first century. The average age of those assuming presidential responsibilities has been approximately 43-and-a-half-years. But statistics are incomplete since birthplace and date information for Fred Nelson (1899) has defied research. Forty-seven of the 89 presidents were age 43 or younger. Which makes it appropriate that one of the two age-groups with the most numbers is 43. Six presidents were at that point in life and the same number were 38. Five were 34; four each had reached 48, 39 and 29 years. The latter figure marks the youngest president, an honor for which four competed. The title belongs to R. LaVaun Cox of the Manti Messenger (1954), who was only five days past his 29th birthday when he accepted the gavel. Norman Fuellen-bach, Richfield Reaper, was three months and 10 days into his 29th year and Leland Burress, Bingham Bulletin, was three months and 22 days past his 29th birthday. Ernest G. Rognon, 194
