June 7, 1929 – Marceline News puts out its first issue

The first newspaper of the city, the Marceline Journal, began publication around June, 1888, and it was closely followed by the appearance of the Marceline Mirror, which put out its first issue in August of that year. The Journal was a Republican paper, and The Mirror followed a Democratic policy. These two weekly publications were united around 1912 to form the Journal-Mirror. In 1913 the Marceline Herald, also a weekly, was begun, and the union of this paper with the Journal-Mirror in 1929 formed the Marceline News, the present paper of the city, which put out its first issue on June 7, 1929.
