Title Page42
Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION edited an immigrant paper in which he wrote in seven languages. Within months after coming to Richfield, Markus bought the interest of publisher J. L. Ewing and until selling it in March, 1930 to Joseph L. Asbury, was the paper's guiding hand. After four years, on March 1, 1934, Asbury turned over the publishing reins to Joseph J. Fuellenbach, whose death late in 1935 forced his widow, Rula, to become a newspaperwoman. She did so with consummate skill until her death April 15, 1957, when her son, Norman J., succeeded her. He, too, passed away on November 27, 1977 and a third generation of the family, son Mark, took over the publisher's desk. The Reaper finally left the Fuellenbach family December 1, 1990 when it was purchased by California-based Brehm Communications, but Mark Fuellenbach remained as resident publisher. The Reaper's mother-and-son publishers, Rula J. and Norman J. Fuellenbach, are a unique family duo enshrined in the Hall of Fame. The Salt Lake Tribune In terms of circulation, Utah's largest newspaper, the Tribune came upon the journalistic landscape April 15, 1871 bearing the name, The Utah Mining Gazette in addition to its Tribune flag. Its founders proclaimed "It shall be conducted as a free, liberal, independent, high-toned secular newspaper, devoted to the interests of the entire people of Utah; strong in the support of right and fearless in exposing wrong..." Actually, the Tribune had begun on January 1, 1870 as the Mormon Tribune, and subsequently was described by historian Noble Warrum in his book, Utah Since Statehood as "A weekly publication opposing some of the policies of the Latter-day Saints Church." Following its change of names, it has subsequently published for 121 years without interruption. A more extensive history of The Salt Lake Tribune appears in Chapter 8. 42
