Description THE UTAH NEWSPAPER HALL OF FAME policy to hamper us in our arguments, or trammel us in our course. We are for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, its authorized tenets, its recognized leaders and its fellow shipped members, first, last and all the time." While editor of the News, Penrose spent two winters in the nation's capital and in other Eastern cities explaining the situation in Utah. He conferred with President Grover Cleveland and every member of Congress on the proposal to give statehood to Utah and wrote articles for Eastern newspapers. Statehood finally came in 1896. For a time the thrice-married Penrose went into exile as a result of the anti-Mormon crusade and the plural marriage dispute. The complexion of the News had undergone a gradual change with political editorials appearing more frequently and political advertisements printed on occasion. The paper sponsored certain political movements and leaders, obviously as a result of the strong anti-Mormon "Liberal" party onslaught which had grown up about that time. On September 30, 1892, Editor Penrose announced his departure from the News and a day later a change of proprietorship in the paper was revealed to its readers. For the next three years the noted newspaperman devoted his energies to the Salt Lake Herald, a portion of that time as its editor. After his return to the News in 1899, however, he would remain as editor until the conclusion of his journalistic career, 37 years after it had begun at the Ogden Junction. In 1904 he had become an apostle in the Latter-day Saints Church and in 1911, after he'd retired from the News, he was named a counselor in the First Presidency. He would serve in that role until his death at age 93 on May 16,1925. These, then, are the credentials of Charles W. Penrose for membership in the Newspaper Hall of Fame .. . His skillful use of the printed word; his ability to bring together the ingredients of an outstanding newspaper; his dedication to journalism which continued unabated until he reached age 75 -- all that and his unflagging defense of causes 597
