Title Pageiii
Description It Seems Quite Appropriate . . . ... that this book be prefaced with a personal explanation. Putting it together was not a sought-after assignment. As one of the senior members of Utah Press Association the author possessed a four-decade memory of its activities. As a retiree, he was perceived to be someone with enough time to devote to the project . . . and one who wouldn't demand financial reimbursement for his efforts. In other words, a researcher willing to perform what is popularly known as "a labor of love." And that it is ~ a gift to an organization that has meant a great deal to both Bette and me and consequently justified the two-plus years of research it required. Had it not been for the late Miles Turnbull, the book still wouldn't have been written - at least by this scribe. The urging of successive association presidents Larry Stahle and Adrien Taylor had been rejected. The long-anticipated freedom of retirement was a far stronger lure. Then Miles, still interested in Utah's newspapers though he'd long since gone on to greater journalistic challenges than those the San Juan Record offered, added his persuasive urging. The person who coined the adage about "selling ice boxes to Eskimos" had Miles and his ilk in mind. So that's how it came to pass that an old war horse gave up a great deal of golf and travel to knit together a volume aptly described in Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address - that part in which he said, "The world will little note, nor long remember..." - Jim Cornwell
