Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION National Editorial Association, but by then Littlefield had long since departed. Before he would conclude his career, he'd contribute his editorial talents to more than two dozen newspapers throughout the West ~ among them publications in San Francisco, Orleans, Yreka, Sacramento and Auburn, California; Salem, Oregon and Austin, Tuscarora, Reno, Virginia City and Elko, Nevada. Then with the Pilot, the News, the Utah State Journal, the Press, the Switch and the Standard in Ogden and the Daily Mining Journal in Salt Lake City. Littlefield was elected interim president in 1893 as the association was established, then served as the 1894 leader. The number of individuals who've held the office of president doesn't correspond with the association's age because some held multiple terms during the organization's early years. In 1996, UPA elected its 90th president. Among those who held the gavel more than a single term was David P. Felt, president a total of six years (1897, 1901-2-3, 1905-6) while affiliated with three different publications in Salt Lake City, Springville and Farmington. James Wallis was president four consecutive years (1918-19-20-21) while publishing the Vernal Express. E. G. Rognon of Payson, Joseph S. Barlow of Murray, Isaac Diehl of Mammoth, C. Max Markus of Richfield and Adrien Taylor of Moab each served two terms. Mrs. Taylor was the first in 65 years to hold multiple terms when she took office in 1993 after previously serving in 1988. She was also the first since Mr. Felt to have non-consecutive presidential terms. It was not by design that she accepted the gavel a second time. Robert L. Prince of the Murray Eagle, was vice president and in the line of ascendency when he left the field after 39 years of newspapering. Wm. James Mortimer of the Deseret News, then secretary and next in line of ascension, felt his limited experience with the association Opposite page> - THE PUBLISHER OF THE Wasatch Wave in Heber City, William Buys, was president of Utah State Press Association in 1904, approximately when this photo of his staff was taken.
