Description THE UTAH NEWSPAPER HALL OF FAME ceeds from the ranch to buy the Ogden paper. A violent wind hit the buffalo ranch that year, however, and the herd stampeded. With it went the steak dinners. Many of the animals swam to Antelope Island, where their progeny continue to thrive. With the buffalo gone, the Glasmanns became pioneer publishers indeed. They sold the ranch and used the proceeds of the sale to reduce the Standard mortgage. Mrs. Glasmann joined her husband in the management of the paper, bringing with her from the ranch the first three members of what would become a family of five in the publishing business: Ross C.

The Junction, however, gave way to the Ogden Daily Herald in 1881, with Charles W. Penrose as editor. He would go on to become Hall of Fame journalist as editor of the Deseret News. But the Herald ceased publication on December 31,1887. And tucked into the pre-Glasmann history of Ogden journalism were such papers as the Freeman, the Morning 539
