The Baltimore Sun was founded by Arunah Shepherdson Abell as a people’s paper reporting the news that mattered most to the residents of Baltimore and the nation including Washington D.C. politics, the slave trade and the Civil War, immigration, commerce, Americana, and literature.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (1874-1922) was the first newspaper of Joseph Pulitzer, the father of “Yellow Journalism.” St. Louis served as a gateway to the west and north and was a city of firsts including the first public demonstration of radio communication, first U.S. host of the Olympics, and location of the world’s first skyscraper.
