About this collection

J.R. Hunter started the Box Elder County News in April 1894. He served as the paper’s editor and publisher. His wife Edith B. Hunter became associate editor on September 12, 1896. In 1898 Charles Pasco and Hyrum Standing succeeded the Hunters in running the newspaper. They dropped “county” from the newspaper’s masthead and it became known as the Box Elder News. Brigham City was home to two newspapers for a time when the Box Elder Report began its weekly publication in 1901; however, it ceased operations in 1908.

 

This digital collection of newspapers from Box Elder County spans the years from 1901 to 1908. It features issues from the Box Elder Report between 1901-1904 and 1908 as well as from the Box Elder News between 1902 to 1905. These issues were digitized by Utah State University from microfilms housed at the Brigham City Museum of Art & History, and the microfilms were made from bound volumes that still reside at the Museum.

 

Funding for the digitization of these materials was provided, in part, by a grant from the Utah State Historical Records Advisory Board (USHRAB) and the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC).
