Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION received. Higgins greeted Rollo in print with this introduction: "We are under obligations to Alex Rollo, a member in good standing in the typographical union, who came to our assistance this week and slung up a few galleys of type. Alex is a first class compositor and could hold a set in any office." The Record proceeded through a succession of ownerships, though. Charles S. Wilkinson and Dan E. Matheson were co-publishers in 1896-97, then Wilkinson assumed the reins in partnership with his brother, J.
