Description THE FORMATION MEETING AND AFTERWARD centennial observance took place there, as well, during its 1985 convention. Two years after NEA's beginnings, in 1887, American Newspaper Publishers Association was created during a Rochester, New York meeting spearheaded by William H. Brearley of the Detroit Evening News. Interestingly, Brearley's publisher, James E. Scripps, was one of the founders of National Editorial Association. ANPA, too, eventually changed its name, as NEA had done in 1965. Its new designation became Newspaper Association of America. Needless to say, there was concern that NNA and NAA were extremely similar alphabetical designations. If ANPA somewhat emulated National Newspaper Association with its changed name, NNA in a sense returned the compliment late in 1993 by moving out of downtown Washington, D.C. ANPA long since had taken up new quarters in Reston, Virginia; NNA's relocation was to Arlington, Virginia. Actually, NEA was based in Chicago for many years and in addition to being a newspaper organization was a travel society under the direction of Don Eck. When he died suddenly on October 20, 1957, Edgar S. Bayol, an executive of the Coca-Cola corporation, was his successor. Theodore A. (Ted) Serrill, longtime Pennsylvania Newspaper Association manager, replaced Bayol as Executive Vice President in 1961 and then-NEA soon moved to the nation's capital. Serrill argued Washington was the logical location and convinced his Board the move would be beneficial. As expected in the beginning, NEA/NNA and ANPA/NAA had somewhat diverse goals and less-than-daily papers gravitated to NEA while dailies, particularly those serving major metropolitan areas, affiliated with ANPA. There have always been overlapping memberships, as well, since one type of paper can learn from the other and mutual objectives bring together publishers of both. It might be said that the advent of television and the proliferation of radio stations across the nation played a part 23
