Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION the association's secretary in 1911, its treasurer in 1913 and its two-term president in 1916-17. In 1913, during a convention held in New Orleans, he was elected secretary of the Western Editorial Federation. He was also active in National Editorial Association and traveled widely to its conclaves held in many states. His contemporaries became accustomed to the butterfly net he carried with him on association outings -- but the scientific world has remembered him more for plantlife discoveries than the pursuit of butterflies and moths. The success of mining in another area of the Tintic district prompted Ike to initiate the Dividend Examiner. The paper had a comparatively brief life span, though, and is obscured by an almost total lack of files. Isaac Diehl's study of law bore fruit after Mammoth was incorporated in 1910. In the community's first election, he was named City Recorder. Later he served as City Attorney as well as Recorder. In 1915, he was Clerk of the Utah House of Representatives, the first lawmaking group to assemble in the then-new state capitol building. When the nation's economy foundered after the crash of 1929, the mining industry ground to a near-halt and Mammoth, like every other community, keenly felt the depression. The Record's revenues gradually diminished and finally, with great reluctance, Ike Diehl wrote -30- to his journalistic career which had spanned nearly a half-century and had made his a well-known name among Utah journalists. His printing shop yielded a meager income, though, and he was a familiar figure in both Mammoth and Eureka through the 1930s. On July 14, 1940, he died while hospitalized in Tooele. The journalistic career of Isaac Diehl might easily be overlooked because his writings were in newspapers which have virtually vanished in the dust of time. But enough survive to demonstrate that he upheld the highest ideals of his chosen work, faithfully recorded in his columns both the eventful and routine happenings of his community and richly deserves commemoration in the Newspaper Hall of Fame. 480
