Title ChapterTen-Page189
Description CHAPTER TEN Those Who Provided Leadership As the association's reputation spread and it grew in stature it attracted into membership, among others, those who would become its future leaders. Some, understandably, appeared on its roster for the first time because they'd just become involved in Utah journalism. Others, longer engaged in Beehive state newspapering, were enticed by the opportunity to rub shoulders with contemporaries in the field and to profit from their experience. Isaac (Ike) Diehl, who became the 1916 president, registered for the first time in 1897, as did another future Hall of Fame member, John Wallis. So did Fred Nelson, who was elected to lead the group in 1899. Norman B. Dresser signed into the 1898 conclave representing the Mercur Miner and became the 1913 president as publisher of the Millard County Chronicle, Delta.
