31. NEWSPAPER GUIDE

Brief guide to newspaper titles of the Grand Canyon region (and a supplemental list for Yuma, Arizona)

Introduction

Newspapers are a valuable resource to the historian. Long-running papers of any town or city are important historical documents, but researchers who bask in the thrill of finding the obscure and unusual anecdote, small-town and out-of-print newspapers are a mine of information.

This list of newspapers does not imply that it is exhaustive, nor is there any guarantee that all of them have had coverage of events or people of the immediate Grand Canyon or lower Colorado River regions. But within these regions it is likely that newspapers published there have had a higher frequency of Canyon- and River-related items than the newspapers of more distant places. This list provides a sampling of newspapers of northern Arizona, southern Nevada, and southern Utah. A special supplement to the Arizona list includes newspapers of that crossroads of the far Southwest, Yuma.

In the citations, places of publication are included in parentheses unless the name of the town forms a part of the title. In all, 59 titles are from Arizona (with 19 more in the Yuma supplement), 25 from Nevada, and 18 from Utah.

The earliest newspaper of the Grand Canyon region appears to have been the semiweekly Arizona Gazette (Prescott), beginning in 1866, although the Arizona Daily Miner (Prescott) began at about the same time. Several other newspapers started up in the late 1860s, and a majority of papers began in the 1870s-1890s; most, however, were short-lived. In Yuma, the earliest newspaper was apparently the weekly Arizona Free Press, beginning in 1871.

Local libraries can assist the researcher in finding the repositories of these newspapers. Many of the publications may be available on microfilm. Several comprehensive guides are available, in which the repositories are listed:
