Description THE UTAH NEWSPAPER HALL OF FAME an "Extra" even though it occurred on Sunday. Sam editorially announced that "Over 1,000 copies were issued and distributed free. They were quickly devoured by the multitude." The Raddon-published newspaper was frequently pointed out as an example of classic journalism. Among its admirers was J. Cecil Alter, author of Early Utah Journalism, who penned, "Neither the sun, moon nor stars ever ran more smoothly than the Park Record seems to have run under the Raddons' management..." Raddon was married in September, 1883 to British-born Clara Deighton. She died not long after the birth of a son, Samuel H., on September 30, 1884. He would follow in his father's footsteps and later became editor of a leading West Coast daily, the Oregon Journal in Portland. Mr. Raddon's second wife, Louisa Harper, whom he married in 1889, was the mother of six children, the oldest dying in infancy. Sam didn't enjoy retirement for long. He died on January 14, 1948, less than a year after turning the Record over to LePage. But he left a large imprint on Utah journalism and richly deserves commemoration in its Hall of Fame. ERNEST R.

In mid-June, 1906, four members of the Rasmuson family were among those newcomers who passed through Ellis Island and were admitted to a new land whose native tongue they could not speak. In fact, they knew little more about America 601
