Description SOME SUCCEEDED; MANY MORE DIDN'T scene. It was the Bingham Bulletin, established June 5, 1891 with Ed K. Watts as editor. He would publish what the Provo Enquirer labelled "a sprightly young journalistic venture" until December 25,1895, when Watts' ill health forced him to sell to J. B. Graham. In a humorous recollection, Graham said: "I became editor, publisher and sole proprietor without paying a dollar down and with nowhere to get one. While in a reckless mood I met the then owner of the Bulletin, who offered to sell it to me on time, as he was ill and wanted a change of climate. City dailies were circulated every morning about 10 o'clock, making the field for a skinny weekly seem bare as a goose pasture. No wonder this young man is feeling unwell, I thought." Graham nevertheless lasted until 1905 and was succeeded by Frank J. Tierney, who had no Bingham office but operated from Salt Lake City's Judge building. Meanwhile the Bingham Press was begun by T. L. Holman in 1908 and by early 1912 had merged with the Bulletin. The resultant Press-Bulletin was published in Bingham Canyon with Charles P. Diehl as editor-manager. In rather rapid succession, W. E. Traughber, I. H. Masters, L. E. Kramer, Phil M. Goldwater and Walter C. Adams ascended the publisher's chair, the latter returning to the Bingham Bulletin name on April 28, 1927. Seven months elapsed before he sold to Howard A. Jarvis on -November 30, 1927. In 1934, the paper was acquired by Howard Barrows and on June 1, 1936 by Leland G. Burress. Barrows would later become publisher of the Midvale Sentinel. In September, 1946, Burress sold the Bulletin to his shop foreman, John Adamek, and his wife, Gladys. Born in Clopo-dia, Bohemia, Adamek came to Olathe, Kansas as a 2-year old child and when in his 'teens learned Linotype operation and studied at the Chicago School of Printing. But he had no formal journalistic training, which was the role filled by Gladys, a Kansas City native and secretarial school graduate. The Adameks would move the paper to West Jordan when the expansion of Kennecott's open pit mining forced Bingham Canyon to be abandoned as a town site. The Adameks, too, supervised the Bulletin's demise on June 23,1961. 57
