Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION Fame. In 1987, Dr. Martin L. (Red) Gibson, head of journalism at the University of Texas and a recognized journalistic authority, who, obviously, discussed his favorite subject, newspaper-ing. The first instance of USPA holding a membership meeting outside the state came in 1904. It took place during the St. Louis World's Fair, when an "Editor's Conference" was held for newsmen throughout the nation. Joint conventions were rare, but did occur. In 1929, Utah joined Wyoming for such a meeting while the National Editorial Association's conclave was taking place in Cheyenne. A Utah delegation travelled to Banff, Alberta, Canada, June 16-19, 1954 to support the nomination of Albert W. Epperson for president-elect of National Editorial Association. It was successful. What was certainly banner attendance by a single state at a convention of NEA took place in 1959 when USPA chose to hold its summer convention simultaneously with that of the national association at the famed Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The Utah contingent was the largest from any state, including host Colorado. On July 15-16, 1960 the Utah and Idaho Press Associations gathered at Island Park, Idaho for a combined meeting. J. M. O'Donnel, head of General Electric's test station, a part of the nuclear research at Arco, Idaho, was the principal speaker. Most participants went on to Jackson Hole, Wyoming on the 17th, where the Jackson Lake Lodge was headquarters. Utahns conveyed their respects to Charles W. Claybaugh when he completed his term as NEA's president in 1963 by travelling to Seattle for the mid-summer convention. The association's 1972 summer meeting was held jointly with that of National Newspaper Association (the re-named Opposite page> - UTAH'S DELEGATION AT THE 1959 convention of the National Editorial Association in Colorado Springs was the largest of any state, including host Colorado.
