History of Early Amateur Journalism in Utah


SALT LAKE CITY in 1876 had an amateur journal called the Utah Amateur, edited by Ernest Moore. In 1902 Alfred V. Peterson, well-known as a poet, published there a paper named By the Way. Many years later the city became the scene of much activity, and furnished a President of the National Association, Miss Elaine Jorgensen [Peck]. She began in 1936 publishing a very neat and readable paper called Inklings, doing the printing herself. Following her came the Busy Bee, edited by Rhoda Wallis; Utam, published by the Utah A.P.C., and the Utahman, issued by Virginia Baker.
