Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION (Editor's note:) As "UPA ... A Century Later" was going to press, the 50th member of the Hall of Fame was installed. It was appropriate to add his credentials to this volume, though they are out of alphabetical order. HARRISON CONOVER, Springville Herald Born August 28, 1907 - Died July 26, 1983 Installed in Hall of Fame at St. George, March 2, 1996 History has recorded two careers for William Harrison Conover. Newspapering, though, was the first -- and the one he pursued longest. For 33 years he was editor, then publisher, of the Springville Herald. For two decades he was the co-publisher and then the sole publisher of the Mt. Pleasant Pyramid. And for 19 years after he'd revived it from newspapering's Valhalla, he was also publisher of the Eureka Reporter. His second career, 16 years as Utah County Assessor, was a virtual footnote. But he earned high regard among his peers for both his journalism and taxation expertise. Few of his newspapering colleagues collected more plaques and trophies in Utah's Better Newspaper Contest than did Harrison Conover. Rivals for typography plaudits were scarce and during the many years blue ribbons in that category were accompanied by prized silver pieces, his publications reaped a rich harvest. In part that was attributable to his alternate printing venture, Art City Publishing Company. For decades it was a Mountain States leader in production of high school and college yearbooks, which required skilled application of graphic arts techniques. Newspapers emerging from the same plant bore evidence of an equal degree of care. 658
