Montrose Recorder, 1901-1918

The Montrose Recorder was established in 1899 by publisher C.C. Arnold. Published weekly, the Recorder covered all manner of local, national, and international news. The paper was sold in 1913 to Lester Sawyer, who took over as editor and publisher. In September of 1918, the offices of the Recorder were destroyed in a fire, and Sawyer chose not to reestablish the paper.

Montrose Tidings, 1919-1943

Following the 1918 fire that destroyed the offices of the Montrose Recorder, members of the Montrose Commercial Club approached James Bush, publisher and editor of the Calhoun Clarion, about starting a new paper in Montrose. Publisher James R. Bush and his son, Adolphus S. Bush, relocated to Montrose and established the Montrose Tidings. In 1923 the paper was sold to husband and wife publishing team Thomas and Lois E. Daniel until 1925, when they sold the Tidings to Woodville Stout. The paper changed hands once again in 1929, after being purchased by Gail Donley and L.E. Shields.

Calhoun Clarion, 1902-1918

The Calhoun Clarion was founded in 1902 by editor and publisher James R. Bush, replacing the Calhoun Free Press as the town’s primary paper. Nonpartisan in nature, the Clarion proclaimed in its March 15, 1902 edition “that its clear and shrill notes shall be for the advancement of our town, county, state and nation.” Published weekly, the paper covered a variety of local, national, and foreign news. In 1911, Bush retired due to his failing health, and the paper was promptly purchased by Calhoun local Philip L. DeHardt.
