Description THE UTAH NEWSPAPER HALL OF FAME away. "As Mormon colonists created other communities in places even more remote, problems faced by the Deseret News were magnified for those who produced their publications. Nevertheless, the need for information existed and early-day journalists filled it, overcoming obstacles beyond the imagination of today's newspaper men and women. "Yellowed copies of those papers reflect the role they played in shaping the area reached by their printed words. Long before radio and television arrived to help inform people, newspapers were the sole disseminators of information. Their files are without doubt the most complete histories of Utah's transition from frontier territory to statehood. "For this reason the Utah Newspaper Hall of Fame was created. It pays tribute to those who made the state's printed publications a reality and recognizes the importance of their leadership in the development of settlements which grew into today's cities and towns. Theirs was a time when a comparative handful had more than a rudimentary education and no formal training existed for journalism. So these early writers came from all walks of life, their only common bond a desire to inform, advise and guide through the printed word. "Newspapers of this era are proud of the heritage left them by these journalistic pioneers and by others of later generations also enshrined here." As each journalist has been placed in the Hall of Fame, a pamphlet detailing his or her lifetime accomplishments has been prepared. It is read at the introductory ceremony and placed on file in the association's headquarters. Those histories are reproduced here: FRANK ASAHEL BECKWITH, Millard County Chronicle Born November 24,1876 - Died June 11, 1951 Installed in Hall of Fame at Salt Lake City, 1966 His plan of life didn't include newspapering and he'd had only brief experience as a writer.
