Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION Statesman. Warrum's successor was Augustus Gordon, whose name would be indelibly linked with editorial leadership of Cache Valley for 36 years until his death on November 10, 1929. His elaborate prose, together with the forward-thinking management of England and Earl, was largely responsible for the Journal's dominant position in that three-decade span.

From editor to editor, the Herald-Journal has shifted between heavy emphasis on local coverage or focussing more on state, national and international news. Nelson, for example, had a network of 19 country correspondents who were supervised by his longtime assistant, Edith Morgan.
