Title Page444
Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION George Q. Cannon: "During his lifetime more than three hundred of his discourses were printed in various publications. His editorials for 'The Juvenile Instructor' numbered well over a thousand, and the editorials written for 'The Millennial Star' and The Deseret News were uncounted hundreds. One could add to that, his writings in 'The Western Standard,' Congressional reviews, and historical articles." Early in his career Cannon learned to be a careful observer of people, his surroundings, and events. He was a constant reader, and possessed a remarkable memory which served him well in his varied assignments. He early recognized that people needed good newspapers "to have healthy, sound and high-toned minds..." He added: "This makes the position of a journalist a most responsible one." Wendell J. Ashton concludes a chapter of his book "Voice in the West", with this summary: "The era that had ushered in the daily and had seen the 'News' operation expand in book publishing and other fields as well as in news-dispensing had now come to an end. In the period past, George Q. Cannon had done more than start a daily. He had brought financial victories to the establishment. He had kept the tone of the newspaper high. Cannon had directed the 'News' through torrents of abuse toward the Mormon people both at home and abroad. His clear, reasonable, and readable writing had defended his people brilliantly. " KARL S. CARLTON, Beaver County News Born February 4, 1866 - Died October 15, 1960 Installed in Hall of Fame at Salt Lake City, 1970 A man whose life had taken him to many places of residence from the Midwest to the Pacific Coast, Karl Carlton was 51 years of age and without newspaper experience when in 1916 he became a Utah publisher. During the next seventeen years he was an assertive and widely-quoted editorialist and successfully produced two Beaver County newspapers which before and after him were frequently financial failures. 444
