Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION "The untimely death of Mr. Epperson at the age of 44 deprives Utah of a true leader and a force for good. All those who knew him join in mourning Mr. Epperson's passing and in offering sincere sympathy to his bereaved family." A simultaneous commendation appeared over the signature of Duchesne Record and Roosevelt Standard publisher Clifton N. Memmott, who wrote: "The untimely passing Sunday evening of Albert W. 'AV Epperson, publisher of the Morgan County News and Summit County Bee, two small weekly newspapers, rendered a sad blow to his family and to his many friends in and out of the newspaper field. "It was my privilege to work closely with 'AV Epperson for a number of years and through his outstanding leadership and influence the Utah State Press Association grew to maturity and became a recognized force nationally. So much so that 'AV was honored by being elected to the National Editorial Association board. Two months ago at the NEA convention in Canada, he was elevated to the vice-presidency and in 1956 would have become NEA president. 'AV Epperson was my friend, as he was a friend to every other newspaper publisher who knew him. His intelligent and thoughtful advice and counsel will be missed by the NEA board, as it will be missed by the executive board of the USPA, of which he has been a member for the past decade and a half. But most of all 'AV will be missed by his wife, Virginia; his daughter, Shirley, and his close associates in his hometown of Morgan, where he put his personality into his newspaper." The praise of his peers and the files of his newspapers evidence Al Epperson's worthiness for Hall of Fame admission. He was a boon to Utah's journalistic community and a credit to the profession he followed. WILLIAM PERRY EPPERSON, Kaysville Reflex Born September 23, 1859 - Died December 31, 1930 Installed in Hall of Fame at Salt Lake City, 1968 Journalism and ranching vied for his favor during much of his early life and printer's ink won out. 492
