Description PAPERS THAT CAME -- AND MANY THAT WENT Watrous didn't explain the different spellings of "Uinta(h)" -- with and without an fh.f The merged paper was produced at Myton for five years before returning to the county seat as the Duchesne Record on July 2, 1915. J. P. May was briefly the publisher, then Watrous was again at the helm. On August 11, 1917, George S. Sloan became the owner and just over a year later, on August 24,1918, R. F. Walsh occupied the publisher's chair. Dr. C. Maximillian (Max) Markus and his wife, Elizabeth, leased the paper in 1919 but returned it to the owner group July 15, 1920. The Markus duo then affiliated with the Richfield Reaper, purchased it and successfully published it until 1930. Meanwhile, the Record had a succession of lessee managers in D. L. Whitehurst, Stephen W. Johnson and Glen C. Gray, the latter accidentally killed June 7, 1921 by a hunter's bullet. The Duchesne Courier, established May 26, 1922, followed on the heels of the Record's demise with C. B. Cook as editor-manager. Three others were co-partners, one of them L. A.

May, the lessee manager, happily announced the paper would no longer be printed at either Myton or Murray, but on equipment now available in Duchesne. George Bowers resumed management on May 13, 1932, but on August 9, 1933, succumbed to a severe illness. His place was taken by Roy A. Schonian, a Coloradoan who engaged in mortuary science as well as journalism. He was the publisher until April 7, 1945 when he was named temporary manager of Utah State Press Association. Two months later the "temporary" became permanent and he would hold the position until November 1, 1949. On September 1, 1950, the Record, along with the Roosevelt Standard, became the property of Clifton N. Memmott. He merged the two into the Uintah Basin Standard on January 1, 1957.
