Title Page157
Description UTAH'S SIX SURVIVING DAILIES professional news and editorial staff to perpetuate the teamwork tradition of excellence which won The Tribune staff a Pulitzer Prize in 1956. The unusual "team" award was made for coverage of the collision of TWA and United airliners over the Grand Canyon in which 128 persons died, commercial aviation's then-worst disaster. The Tribune also has continued the Fitzpatrick policy to lead or support every progressive step for the state of Utah, social, educational, economic, governmental and environmental. Notable was The Tribune's campaign that launched Utah into what is now its largest industry, tourism. It began in 1961 with organization of the effort to unite the community in support of construction of the Salt Palace Convention Center. Simultaneously, The Tribune played a principal role in support of the conversion of Park City from a near ghost mining town to a world class ski resort. World-wide publicity attendant to Salt Lake City's Winter Olympic bids has been a major factor in promotion of the growth of Utah winter sports into a major tourism revenue generator. The Tribune was a prime mover of the Olympic bid effort commencing in 1966. In the interest of economy in government, The Tribune has repeatedly campaigned for merger of Salt Lake County and its cities. Every effort has been defeated. Such merger remains a goal of the tenacious Tribune. - Excerpted and edited from "The First 100 Years," a history of The Salt Lake Tribune by O. N. Malmquist. The Standard-Examiner As a primary newspaper in the region of Weber, North Davis, Box Elder and Morgan counties, the Standard-Examiner today has achieved a presence that might shock the men who founded and nurtured the daily newspaper more than a century ago in "the graveyard of Western journalism." 157
