Title Pagevii-Foreword
Description FOREWORD may be overlooked that the former title prevailed until Utah gained statehood in 1896. UPA then became USPA and was so-titled for three-quarters of a century until members concluded the word 'State' gave the mistaken impression theirs was an arm of Utah's government. They forthwith removed it, returning to Utah Press Association. The book has endeavored to apply the name in use at the time a particular incident occurs. Several people have been of assistance in salvaging what information could be found about Utah Press Association and its member newspapers. Failure to recognize them at all outweighs the fear that someone equally deserving might be omitted through oversight, so gratitude is expressed to: Paul Sencevicky of Bremerton, Washington; Daily and weekly news staffer Lona Udy Parrish of Kaysville; Former Price Sun Advocate publisher and UPA past president Robert Finney; David P. Heighten of the Latter-day Saints Church family history library; One-time Tremonton publisher and UPA past president Glen Curtis; The late A. J. (Jeff) Simmonds, a Utah State University historical librarian; R. Howard Harrison, whose father was a longtime Utah publisher and association president; Julian Newman, for decades an associate member and vigorous USPA/UPA supporter; Gordon Owen, Jr., once USPA's manager and a grandson of founding publisher Walter Webb; LaRee Pehrson, veteran Magna area journalist; Paul Richards, formerly of Brigham Young University and now editor of the Provo Daily Herald; . . . and the staffs of the University of Utah's Marriott Library and the State Historical Society Library, who tolerated our frequent forays into their special collections and microfilm files and smilingly assisted whenever asked
