Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION and publishers, today's Herald can, in fact, trace its ancestry to Provo's first paper. The original Daily Times became the Utah County Advertiser, then the Utah County Enquirer, the Territorial Enquirer and the Utah Enquirer before emerging on November 30, 1889 as the Daily Enquirer. It suffered through not infrequent competitive challenges, perilous financial times and several management changes before becoming the property of brothers Heber and Nephi Hicks on March 7, 1907. It was then published for a time as a semi-weekly and in 1920 was renamed the Post. Meanwhile, the other ancestor of the Herald, the Utah County Democrat, began life on August 31, 1898. The Democrat was renamed the Herald on March 4, 1909 and began semi-weekly frequency. It, too, went through serious money problems and variations of ownership, before becoming a daily on April 17, 1922. On July 1, 1924 the Daily Herald acquired the competing Post and on September 14, 1926 the merged firm was sold to the Scripps-Canfield Newspaper Group. For nearly 70 subsequent years under that group's guidance it was Provo's sole daily paper. Then, on July 1, 1996, it was purchased by Pulitzer Publishing Company of St. Louis. A more complete history of the Herald will be found in Chapter 8. John C. Graham, first manager of the Enquirer, Nephi Hicks of the Post and Ernest R. Rasmuson of the Daily Herald are all commemorated in the Hall of Fame. In summation, Utah's current publications with the longest history assemble in this order, headed by three dailies: Salt Lake City's Deseret News and The Tribune, then Provo's Daily Herald; the Park Record, Logan's Herald-Journal, the Richfield Reaper, Ogden's Standard-Examiner, the Wasatch Wave, the Mt. Pleasant Pyramid, Vernal's Express, the Sun-Advocate of Price, the Davis County Clipper, the Lehi Free Press, Springville's Herald, the Enterprise of Ephraim, the Summit County Bee and the Manti Messenger. 50
