The Urich Herald was founded in May 1893 by editor and publisher Mack V. Thralls, former publisher of the Appleton City Journal. Described as “Political, but non-partisan. Independent in all things, neutral in nothing civic or moral,” (citation) the Herald covered both local, national, and international news. After twenty years at the Herald, Mack V. Thralls sold the paper to Professor Henry Hillebrand Jr. in 1913. The paper changed hands again less than a year later when Hillebrand sold the paper to Urich local J.A. Overbey. The Urich Herald remained in the Overbey family until 1930, when it was sold to Ms. Adda V. Eversole.
