Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION selves. Adding flesh and muscle to that framework would require far more space than this text affords. Not since 1938, when the late J. Cecil Alter published his significant Early Utah Journalism, has the ongoing story of Utah newspapers been updated. In these intervening fifty-eight years the tides of change have brought major revisions in ownership and personnel to a majority of the state's publications.

But it's still a compilation of value to an organization which has thrived for over a century in spite of its poor record in file-handling.

It'd also be well to explain, for those who may become curious about it, that the association's name alternates in this text between Utah Press Association and Utah State Press Association.
