Description THE FORMATION MEETING AND AFTERWARD where the Centre Theatre was later built and, still later, the Broadway Centre, a modern office structure, was erected. Others present at the January convention who had not attended the organizational meeting a month earlier were: W. D. Duncan, Ogden Sun; John James, Deseret News, C. J. Pettee, The Silver Star; Joel Shomaker, Manti Messenger; W. Earl Smith, Kaysville Eagle and George Webb, father of Walter and both his predecessor and then successor as editor of the Lehi Banner. Though they'd travelled to the December meeting in Lehi, William Glasmann, Lamoni Call and John Stahle were not at the January 20th gathering. Subsequently Stahle and Glasmann intermittently attended association gatherings, but Call did not. Only a few months after the organizational meeting --in June, 1894 -- he left the Clipper to concentrate on commercial printing, leaving journalistic pursuits to his former partner.

Rognon, who then had a dual affiliation with the Globe and the American Eagle of Murray, was the first, in 1895-6. James was next in 1898, followed by Ephraim's Murray in 1900. Walter Webb, who called the first meeting, remained in newspapering only two years afterward. He devoted most of his working life to the beet sugar industry as a chemist, secretary, factory foreman and statistician. His journalistic talents were put to use, however, as editor of Utah-Idaho Sugar Company's house organ during the 18 years he was in its Salt Lake City headquarters. Webb's attraction to that business is evidenced by references in his autobiography to time spent at Rocky Ford and Greeley, Colorado; Waverly, Washington and 17
