Rolla Weekly Herald

 

 

 

The Herald of Liberty (est. 1866) was re-named the Rolla Weekly Herald in 1869. Addressing its readers on January 6, 1870, the Herald scorned the tradition of newspapers presenting themselves as public servants, stating “This we do not propose to do, as we do not consider ourselves as the servants of the public, but a firm and staunch ally in all that tends to promote the interests of our town and county.” This Democratic newspaper circulated “largely among the farmers, miners, and mechanics.”
