Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION before New Mexico Press Association finally evolved in 1927. Statehood did not come until 1912. Montana newsmen molded a society on February 10, 1885, four years before the territory became a state. Nevada, even though its first newspaper began publication in 1858 and statehood followed in 1864, had no association until 1924. An abortive attempt in 1911 had failed.

It called for "A National Editors' and Publishers' Association in and for the United States of America." Interestingly, the Minnesota group's singular action took place in Ashland, Wisconsin, where they'd travelled by lake steamer as a part of their summer convention. On February 19, 1885, half-a-year later, the first national convention was held during the World's Industrial and Cotton Centennial Exposition in New Orleans and Ben Herbert was elected charter president. NEA, on July 8, 1917, placed a commemorative plaque in Red Wing, citing Herbert as its founder while editor of that city's newspaper. The association's 22
