Description YOUNG" PAPERS THAT ACTUALLY ARE OLD found articles and especially advertising matter." H. H. Johnston and Will J. Peters were at the paper's helm by 1916 and two years later Kramer and Peters were in partnership. While Johnston had no other Utah newspaper credits, Peters did have. He had once been a travelling performer, the head of "Peters Peerless Players." After going broke on the road, he launched the Panguitch Progress, and was involved with the Garfield County News and the Mount Pleasant Pyramid. Kramer, who had been Salt Lake County Attorney in 1916 and would be again in 1940, had formerly edited the Mercur Miner, the Bingham Press, the Deep Creek News at Ibapah and the Ophir Examiner. In 1922 he had founded the Magna Banner and the Garfield Leader. The Bulletin was acquired by the Transcript on December 4, 1923, bringing about today's hyphenated nameplate. Alex Dunn had succeeded his father at the Transcript and would continue to publish the merged Transcript-Bulletin until his death, March 29, 1964. Dunn was a staunch advocate of open meetings of governmental bodies and their obligation to make a public accounting of their financial transactions. When, in the mid-1980s, UPA failed to support him during such a controversy, he withdrew, remaining at odds with the association until February 16, 1957, when he rejoined. In time, it might be added, to help create the Newspaper Hall of Fame and to receive the coveted Master Editor and Publisher Award in 1962. At the time of his father's death, Joel, a third generation of the family, took over the paper and is the present publisher. His sons, Scott and Clayton, are active in the newspaper operation as well, creating a four-generation sequence. James Dunn is commemorated in the Newspaper Hall of Fame. TREMONTON The first newspaper in this Box Elder County community, the Tremont Times, was established by Fred Nihart, one of three neighboring farmers who decided to start a town and develop its real estate potential. Its original name, Tremont, 107
