Description THE UTAH NEWSPAPER HALL OF FAME the organization, Albert followed in their footsteps in 1945. Six years later he was elected to the Board of the national association and while in that position was a member of its affiliated organization, National Advertising Service. After he became owner of the Morgan newspaper in 1946, he continued to reside in Kaysville and publish the Reflex until its sale in 1950. He then moved to Morgan. He had extensive affiliations with other groups, not all of which were newspaper-related. Among them were the Ogden Chamber of Commerce, Utah Manufacturing Association, the Kiwanis Club of Layton, the Masonic Lodge of Ogden, the Morgan Lions Club, Sigma Delta Chi professional journalism fraternity and both the Salt Lake City and Ogden Advertising Clubs. He served on the City Council of Kaysville and was a member of the First Church of Christ, Scientist. He was married on February 25, 1938 in Farmington to Virginia Udy. Their daughter, Shirley (Mrs. Alfred Phillips) lives in Bountiful. A Deseret News editorial on August 16, 1955, reflects the widespread respect Epperson commanded in his profession. "One of the real foundation stones of the American way of life is the small country weekly newspaper," it read. "Among the stalwarts of our way of life are the dedicated, unassuming men who operate these papers, take an interest in local community affairs and help to preserve our heritage of freedom by providing a free press to the rural and semi-urban communities throughout the land. "Albert W. Epperson was such a man. A native of Colorado, he came to Utah in 1928 to learn the art of printing from his uncle, W. P. Epperson, who long operated the Inland Printing and Kaysville Reflex in Davis County. Albert Epperson stayed to make his home in Utah and to become owner and publisher of the Morgan County News and Summit County Bee. He was well known and respected in professional circles and was a member of the National Editorial Association, a director and past president of the Utah State Press Association and a member of Sigma Delta Chi, a national professional journalism fraternity. 491
