Hermann Advertiser Courier maskhead

 

The Advertiser-Courier printed its first issue in 1873 under the name of The Hermann Advertiser.  It was the first English paper in Gasconade County.  The paper was run by the same company who published The Hermanner Volksblatt, C. Graf & Co.  The population of Hermann was almost exclusively German at the time and they would subscribe to both papers.  “… the subscribers of the German paper (The Volksblatt) saw in the ‘English” paper the means of acquiring the language of their adopted country and at the same time induce their children to read and learn English, became subscribers of both papers, the local news being generally a literal translation from that published in the German weekly and thus formed attractive supplementary reading for the young Teutons.”
